Ampiginous choroiditis is a rare inflammatory disease that progressively alters the chorio-capillary, pigmented epithelium (PE) and neurosensory retina. We report the case of a 43-year-old patient with decreased visual acuity at finger count (CF) in both eyes, with multiple yellowish-white lesions of varying size, mostly in the peri-papillary region.

Keywords: Ampiginous choroiditis, Relentless placoid maculopathy, Serpiginous choroiditis, Placoid pigmentepitheliopathy.
