A case of acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy was evaluated over a 22-month period. Various pathologic stages are illustrated by color photographs and fluorescein angiography. Our studies of this patient include electroretinography, electro-oculography, dark adaptation, and color vision. These indicate that the anomaly is most consistent with a diffuse disease of the pigment epithelium.
