Abstract Ten moderately myopic women had blurred vision, light flashes, or paracentral scotomas associated with small yellow-white lesions of the inner choroid and pigment epithelium. Most lesions had an overlying serous detachment, were hyperfluorescent, and leaked fluorescein during the acute phase. The lesions healed into atrophic scars and became progressively more pigmented with time. Subretinal neovascular membranes later developed from scars in six patients. Vision was usually only minimally affected unless the lesions were subfoveal or unless choroidal neovascular membranes subsequently occurred. Extensive laboratory studies were noncontributory.
