Multifocal choroiditis and panuveitis (MCP) is an idiopathic inflammatory disorder of unknown etiology affecting the choroid, retina, and vitreous of the eye that presents asymmetrically, most often in young myopic women with photopsias, enlargement of the physiologic blind spot and decreased vision.[citation needed]

The first description of the disease was written in 1973.[1]


Blurry vision, mild pain in the eyeballs, as well as small yellow, grey, and white spots may begin to appear on the retina.[1]
