Acute macular neuroretinopathy (AMN) is a rare retinal entity that affects the outer nuclear and plexiform layers and the photoreceptors resulting in paracentral scotomas.1,2 It is associated with a flulike illness, oral contraceptive use, or exposure to epinephrine. However, AMN has also been described following nonocular trauma.3 To our knowledge, only 1 report4 describes trace intraretinal fluid (IRF) associated with AMN. We report an unusual presentation of AMN with IRF and subretinal fluid (SRF) following nonocular trauma that resolved spontaneously.
