Optical coherence tomography (OCT) was performed which confirmed the fundoscopic findings of intraretinal haemorrhage (Figure 3(a)) and demonstrated hyperreflective lesions involving the outer nuclear layer (Figures 3(a) and 3(b)) and photoreceptor outer segments, encroaching onto the retinal pigment epithelial layer indicating an acute macular neuroretinopathy (AMN) picture as part of a clinical panuveitis complex (Figure 3(b)).

Caption: Figure 3: Optical coherence tomographic images of the right (a) and left (b) eyes, demonstrating intraretinal haemorrhage (white arrows (a)), a hyperreflective lesion in the outer nuclear layer with diffuse thickening (black arrow (a)), and increased hyperreflectivity at the level of the outer nuclear layer, external limiting membrane, ellipsoid zone, and interdigitation zone consistent with an acute macular neuroretinopathy (AMN) (black arrow (b)).
