Relentless placoid chorioretinopathy (RPC) is a relatively rare and more severe variant of acute posterior multiple placoid pigment epitheliopathy (APMPPE) and serpiginous choroidopathy (SC). The lesions can first involve the periphery and can recur in crops over months to years, causing atrophy in healed areas, thus the term relentless or ampiginous. Literature about RPC is limited to case reports and case series. The etiology and treatment of this condition are still unclear. In this illustrative essay, we demonstrate sequential clinical, autofluorescence (AF), and optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging findings in a case of RPC that progressed over 8 weeks to cause bilateral severe vision loss.
