The clinical and fluorescein angiographic findings are described in three young female patients showing rapid loss of central vision secondary to multifocal, yellow-white, placoid lesions at the level of the pigment epithelium and choroid; rapid resolution of these lesions with permanent alterations in the pigment epithelium and minimal damage to the adjacent choroid and retina; and significant visual improvement which continued for several weeks or months after apparent ophthalmoscopic resolution of the acute lesions.
