Electrodiagnosis in Doubtful Photic Injury to the Retina
The EOG and ERG were recorded in two patients clinically diagnosed as acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy (A.P.M.P.P.E.). The EOG and ERG findings, however, were not in conformity with the electrodiagnostic data reported in the acute phase of A.P.M.P.P.E.
The hypothesis is posed that sub-threshold photic injury may have cleared the way for the manifestation of a fundus disorder resembling A.P.M.P.P.E.
