to report fundus autofluorescence and OCT findings of blunt ocular trauma.
Six eyes of 6 consecutive patients with blunt ocular trauma were evaluated in an observational case series with color fundus photography, the Heidelberg Retina Angiograph 2 (HRA2) system for fundus autofluorescence and optical coherence topography (Stratus OCT).
Six patients with recent history of blunt ocular trauma were included. Three patients presented with secondary retinal pigment epitheliopathy that was identified as a hypoautofluorescent plaque with smaller interposed hyperautofluorescent granular lesions. The other three patients had subretinal hemorrhage and choroidal rupture, which appeared hypoautofluorescent with a hyperautofluorescent rim after resolution. OCT demonstrated the choroidal rupture and its resolution over time.
