The peripheral hyperautofluorescent lesions with central hypofluorescent RPE disruption are similar to those observed in other retinal white dot syndromes (MEWDS, AZOOR, and PIC).
According to Gass, AZOOR belongs to "white dot" syndromes, which is a wide spectrum of idiopathic inflammatory retinal disorders [1, 2].
The purpose of our study is to describe a case of AZOOR with typical clinical findings and abnormal ERG that presented with normal EOG, in contrast to the up till now published reports.
The patient was diagnosed with AZOOR due to typical clinical, visual field and ERG findings despite the normal EOG findings.
Photopsias are described as a symptom at presentation in the vast majority of the cases of AZOOR [1].
The pathogenesis causing the photoreceptor impairment in AZOOR is still unresolved.
There are only a few reports that evaluated choroidal thickness in AZOOR. Subfoveal choroidal thickness in AZOOR patients tended to be less than that in normal eyes without retinal diseases (243 [micro]m versus 289 [micro]m) [6], although there was no significant difference between the two groups.
The aim of this study was to evaluate sequential changes in choroidal thickness at the affected area in eyes with AZOOR.
Owen was helped by Michael Parsons, whose peripheral eye condition has similar characteristics to that of AZOOR.
A systematic review of all the peer-reviewed, English language articles indexed in PubMed about BCR, APMPPE, MEWDS, MFC, PIC, and AZOOR was carried out.
AZOOR. AZOOR, thought of predominantly in young women, includes a rapid loss of one or more large zones of outer retinal function and photopsias with minimal fundus changes.
In evaluating the current literature for AZOOR, data was obtained from 5 articles (Table 6) [66-70].
