Abstract

Indolent, nonprogressive, multifocal, choroidal lesions represent a newly described, benign, nosological entity that is diagnosed after exclusion of funduscopically similar uveitic and neoplastic processes. Although believed to be a unilateral condition, the authors describe the case of a 63-year-old man presenting with bilateral lesions during a 2-year follow-up conducted by means of optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). Surprisingly, OCTA revealed that the vascular rarefaction, albeit primarily affecting the choriocapillaris, also involved the overlying retinal plexuses. © 2018 Slack Incorporated.
