Question:

Macular folds on ophthalmoscopy may correspond to the MR finding of :
1. abnormal enhancement in the retrobulbar fat.
2. Irregular thickening and buckling of the choroid
3. Suprachoroidal fluid collections
4. Both (b) and (c)
5. None of the above





Answer:

The correct answer for the question "Macular folds on ophthalmoscopy may correspond to the MR finding of :" is:

4. Both (b) and (c)



Explanation

(The contour irregularity of the choroid and the suprachoroidal fluid correspond to the physical examination finding of macular folds.)

a) The perineural signal change in the retrobulbar fat is a nonspecific finding which may be seen in a variety of inflammatory processes.

Abstract
Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease (KFD), also called histiocytic necrotizing lymphadenitis, is rare condition that usually presents with lymphadenitis and fever. KFD has been associated with many infectious disease processes, predominantly viral. Association with systemic inflammatory processes has been described. Here we present a case of KFD with the rare ocular manifestation of bilateral anterior uveitis, and corresponding findings on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
