ACUTE ZONAL OCCULT OUTER RETINOPATHY (AZOOR). DIFFICULTIES IN DIAGNOSIS
Purpose: The purpose of this article is to identify a way to differentiate acute zonal occult outer retinopathy (AZOOR) from the age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
Methods: A case study.
Results: Determination of morphofunctional changes in acute zonal occult outer retinopathy (AZOOR) that distinguish it from age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
Conclusion: If AZOOR is suspected, patients should definitely conduct electrophysiological studies. The appearance of pigment on the retina also seemed suspicious to us. This happens already in a far advanced process.
