A 57-year-old Asian female presented with gradual onset defective vision in her right eye for one year. The vision was 20/80 in right eye, and counting fingers at 2m in left eye. Anterior segment of both eyes showed cataract. Fundi showed multiple, well-defined, yellow-white excavated areas of chorioretinal atrophy clustered around the posterior pole suggestive of chorioretinal lacunae [Figure 1]a and [Figure 1]b. [Figure 1]c and [Figure 1]d, shows OCT passing through the lacunae. Patient gives a history of seizures & respiratory infections. We believe these findings are consistent with the classic triad of female gender, pathognomonic chorioretinal lacunae, and seizures suggestive of Aicardi syndrome.,
|Figure 1: (a and b) Fundus photographs of both eyes showing ovoid, well-defined, excavated areas of chorioretinal atrophy clustered around in peripapillary area with pigmented margins suggestive of chorioretinal lacunae. (c) OCT scans passing through the lacunae and (d) through the island of spared foveal region in the right eye. LE OCT could not be captured due to cataract changes. These lacunae are full-thickness defects limited to the RPE epithelium and choroid, with an intact overlying retina|
