Abstract

Purpose: To report simultaneous occurrence of multiple evanescent white dot syndrome (MEWDS) and multifocal choroiditis (MFC) in the same eye of a 33-year-old Caucasian woman. Methods: Review of clinical and fluorescein angiographic features of a patient who presented with decreased visual acuity and was followed for 3 months. Results: Patient presented with concurrent lesions of MEWDS and MFC occurring in the same eye. During the follow-up period MEWDS lesions resolved and MFC lesions evolved into chorioretinal scars. Conclusions: Simultaneous development of MEWDS and MFC may indicate a possible common causal entity.
