Arch Ophthalmol. 2002;120(7):996. doi:10.1001/archopht.120.7.996

A 27-YEAR-OLD woman presented with a 2-week history of decreased visual acuity and central photopsia of the right eye. She was in good health, and her ocular history was significant only for moderate myopia.

Best-corrected visual acuity on presentation was 20/400 OD and 20/20 OS. Fundus examination revealed a flat, pigmented subfoveal lesion with multiple chorioretinal scars clustered in the right macula (Figure 1). Results of examination of the left fundus were normal.
