Abstract This article reports the case of a 32-year-old female patient who presented with severe spasmodically occurring retrobulbar pain, headaches and light sensitivity. The neurological examination confirmed cephalalgia but no evidence of other neurological symptoms was found. Ophthalmoscopy revealed yellowish patchy lightened spots in the middle periphery. Fluorescein angiography (FLA) and indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) revealed findings typical for acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy (APMPPE). Hypofluorescent areas visible using ICGA in the early and late phases showed corresponding hypoperfused areas by optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A). To the best of our knowledge this is the first description of these findings in OCT-A. This article was published in Ophthalmologe and referenced in Journal of Clinical & Experimental Ophthalmology
