Multifocal choroiditis associated with progressive subretinal fibrosis, which was reported by Cantrill and Folk in 1986, is characterized by acute multifocal choroiditis resulting in progressive subretinal fibrosis. All cases were young, healthy females. Our case was a 17-year-old female who complained of visual disturbance in her left eye. Ophthalmoscopy showed multiple, small, yellowish-white hypopigmented, choroidial lesions in the posterior fundus of her left eye. These lesions showed hyperfluorescence in fluorescein angiography and hypofluorescence in indocyanine green (ICG) angiography. One month later the yellowish-white hypopigmented, choroidal lesions increased in number and subretinal fibrosis appeared in the macular area. Two months later subretinal fibrosis was also found in the area except for the macula. In her right eye, ophthalmoscopy and fluorescein angiography showed no abnormal findings, but ICG angiography revealed choroidal hypofluorescence areas. Two years later the subretinal fibrosis was increased and the yellowish-white lesions showed pigmentation.
