Abstract

The ophthalmic manifestations of dengue fever include a visually impairing maculopathy, where patients are left with a central or paracentral relative scotoma. The authors present a case of a 26-year-old female patient returning from Thailand with unilateral reduction in visual acuity and a central scotoma associated with dengue fever. The authors report the use of the optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) as a noninvasive imaging platform to demonstrate its value in showing the persistent changes corresponding to the functional central scotoma in dengue-related maculopathy, which often cannot be visualized clinically or by standard OCT and fundus fluorescein angiography.
