Optometry case study – Multifocal choroiditis with associated CNV

Multifocal choroiditis is idiopathic, bilateral inflammation of the choroid. It is characterised by multiple, round, yellow-grey lesions throughout the fundus, ranging from 10-1,000µm in diameter. It is fairly uncommon, and tends to occur in middle-aged, myopic, Caucasian females. CNV has been found to develop in 24-35% of cases but has previously been difficult to diagnose with fluorescein angiography. The incorporation of OCT in practice has improved confidence in diagnosis of CNV development, allowing for earlier treatment and improved patient outcomes | more
