Transient spectral domain optical coherence tomography findings in classic MEWDS: a case report.

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to describe a patient with multiple evanescent white dot syndrome (MEWDS) who presented with classic retinal findings and transient changes in outer retinal anatomy. A 20-year-old man presented with mild blurred vision in the left eye, reporting flu-like symptoms 1 week before the visual symptoms started. Fundus examination of the left eye revealed foveal granularity and multiple scattered spots deep to the retina in the posterior pole. Fluorescein angiography and indocyanine green angiography showed typical MEWDS findings. Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography has shown transient changes in outer retinal anatomy with disappearance of inner segment-outer segment junction and mild attenuation of external limiting membrane. Six months later, Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography has shown complete resolution with recovery of normal outer retinal aspect.
