    Description
    Green-light fundus autofluorescence (FAF) of the right eye from a 55-year-old man with risk factors for sexually trasnmitted diseases who presented to the retina clinic for a central scotoma. Funduscopy revealed a placoid lesion in the posterior pole. FAF highlights a hyperautofluorescent placoid lesion involving the macula with granular hyperfluorescence. The patient tested positive for syphilis and received intravenous penicillin treatment.
