A 16-year-old girl had decrease in vision following dapsone overdose. This case demonstrated optical coherence tomography (OCT) evaluation of macular infarction following dapsone poisoning. OCT showed characteristic serial changes as Stage 1: Cystic macular edema, Stage 2: Resolving cystic change and Stage 3: Foveal atrophy. Hence, OCT could show the progression of foveal atrophy from cystic macular edema following dapsone poisoning.
