Punctate inner choroidopathy
A rare ophthalmic disorder characterized by typically bilateral asymmetric yellowish punctate chorioretinal lesions of the posterior pole forming a linear branching pattern and progressing to atrophic scars. Subretinal neovascular membranes occur in many cases. Vitritis is always absent. Patients may present with blurred vision scotoma floaters photopsia and metamorphopsia. Choroidal neovascular membrane formation and subretinal fibrosis are the major causes of visual loss. The condition predominantly occurs in young myopic females.
