    Abstract

    Purpose: To assess retinal morphology in acute zonal occult outer retinopathy
    (AZOOR).
    Methods: Three patients with a normal ophthalmoscopic fundus appearance, a history of photopsia, and visual field loss compatible with AZOOR were examined using optical coherence tomography, automated perimetry and multifocal electroretinography.
    Results: All three patients demonstrated partial or complete photoreceptor atrophy corresponding to partial or complete scotomata of retinal origin.
    Conclusion: Photoreceptor atrophy can be demonstrated early in the course of AZOOR, before ophthalmoscopically visible changes of the retinal pigment epithelium occur. The topographic association between photoreceptor loss and visual dysfunction indicates that photoreceptor loss is the cause of visual loss.
