Abstract Purpose: To report fundus autofluorescence (FA) and spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SDOCT) findings in serpiginous choroiditis.Design: Case report.Methods: SDOCT and FA imaging of a 37-year-old woman with bilateral recurrent serpiginous choroiditis.Results: Active new lesions disclosed hyperautofluorescence, in contrast to hypoautofluorescent scarred lesions. SDOCT showed increased reflectance of the choroid and deeper retinal layers, along with disruption of the photoreceptor inner and outer segment junction in both active and inactive lesions.Conclusion: Autofluorescence imaging and SDOCT are useful noninvasive methods for the evaluation of serpiginous choroiditis. Autofluorescence imaging allows identification of recurrences and retinal pigment epithelium involvement in the follow-up of this disease.
