Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomographic Findings at Each Stage of Punctate Inner Choroidopathy – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To describe the natural course of punctate inner choroidopathy (PIC) using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT).Design: Prospective observational case series.Participants: Forty-two consecutive patients (60 eyes) with PIC with at least 3 months of follow-up.Methods: Serial SD-OCT images were obtained from both eyes of each participant at each visit.Main Outcome Measures: The morphologic characteristics of each stage of PIC lesions observed by SD-OCT.Results: Continued stage progression of PIC lesions was observed in 27 eyes (45%), among which choroidal thickness changes were observed in 8 eyes (30%). Stage I lesion showed a normal appearance or slight irregularities in the outer nuclear (Read more...)
