Bottom Line: Pattern and full-field electroretinograms (PERG and ERG) revealed macular involvement associated with generalized retinal dysfunction.Electrooculogram (EOG) light rise and the Arden ratio were within normal limits bilaterally.Conclusion.

ABSTRACT
Background. To report a case of acute zonal occult outer retinopathy (AZOOR) with atypical electrophysiology findings. Case Presentation. A 23-year-old-female presented with visual acuity deterioration in her right eye accompanied by photopsia bilaterally. Corrected distance visual acuity at presentation was 20/50 in the right eye and 20/20 in the left eye. Fundus examination was unremarkable. Visual field (VF) testing revealed a large scotoma. Pattern and full-field electroretinograms (PERG and ERG) revealed macular involvement associated with generalized retinal dysfunction. Electrooculogram (EOG) light rise and the Arden ratio were within normal limits bilaterally. The patient was diagnosed with AZOOR due to clinical findings, visual field defect, and ERG findings. Conclusion. This is a case of AZOOR with characteristic VF defects and clinical symptoms presenting with atypical EOG findings.

Mentions: Two months after first visit, patient evaluation was repeated. Vision in her right eye had deteriorated to 20/63, while in the left eye it was stable at 20/20. Visual field testing was also repeated and revealed further depression of sensitivity in the right eye and involvement of the left eye (Figure 5). The patient was followed up for 8 additional months and her symptoms and clinical findings were stabilized bilaterally. In the course of follow-up she also underwent magnetic resonance imaging of head and abdomen without findings.
