A 35 years old presented with complaints of distortion of vision since 1 week and difficulty in night driving since 1 month in both the eyes(OU). BCVA was 6/6, N6 slit lamp was normal OU. Fundus showed multiple white lesions, glistening retinal reflex. Optical coherence tomography revealed incomplete foveolitis with sensorineural detachment. On further enquiry, patient gave history of dengue fever 1.3 years back which was treated. Fundus reports revealed placoid lesions OU without hemorrhage change. Fundus fluorescent angiography confirmed the findings. Thus a diagnosis of acute multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy with residual post dengue foveolitis was made.
