Placoid Pigment Epitheliopathy With Swelling of the Optic Disks

Arch Neurol. 1973;29(3):204-205. doi:10.1001/archneur.1973.00490270086017

A 19-year-old man developed bilateral swelling of his optic disks several months after his condition was diagnosed as placoid pigment epitheliopathy. Investigations for intracranial disease showed no abnormality. Unless sought specifically by examination with adequate illumination through dilated pupils, placoid pigment epitheliopathy may easily be missed.
