A 24-year-old female patient presented with sudden onset of paracentral visual field defects of the right eye, which were noticed 2 months before the clinical examination. The slit lamp examination of the anterior and posterior segments showed unremarkable findings but three oval, well demarcated, hyporeflective areas were noticed in the right posterior pole in infrared fundus photographs. A similar small area was found in the left posterior pole. Optical coherence tomography (Cirrus OCT) showed a structural defect of the hyperreflective bands of the outer retina. The diagnosis of acute macular neuroretinopathy was made.
