Review of slit lamp fundoscopy, color fundus photography, spectral-domain optical coherence tomography, and fluorescein angiography. Slit lamp examination revealed parafoveal microaneurysms, parafoveal intraretinal hemorrhages, and outer segment irregularity in the left eye. Fundus photos demonstrated retinal hemorrhages and a greyish-whitish sheen in the central parafoveal area. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) was notable for a small pocket of outer segment and RPE disruption and irregularity in the central foveal area of the left eye. Fluorescein angiography (FA) revealed increased focal macular leakage within a larger central area of leakage and staining. Unilateral acute idiopathic maculopathy and, specifically coxsackievirus related chorioretinitis, should be considered in the differential diagnosis of atypical maculopathy.
