Acute macular neuroretinopathy (AMN) is a rare retinal disorder first described by Bos and Deutman in 1975. It usually presents as an acute onset of paracentral scotoma, with characteristic fundus findings of reddish-brown wedge-shaped or petaloid lesions located within the parafoveal area. With the recent advances of spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT), Sarraf et al. initially categorized the lesions into two types according to the layer involved: either above or below the outer plexiform layer (OPL).
