Clinical Observation

Abstract: Persistent placoid maculopathy (PPM) is a bilateral inflammatory chorioretinopathy characterized by long-standing plaque-like macular lesions. No systemic manifestations have been reported to date. We describe a case of PPM complicated by cerebral vasculitis, suggesting that neurological symptoms, including headache, should be enquired about in all PPM subjects.
