      Hi Bryan,

      Thank you for taking the time to comment. I appreciate it.

      This was an isolated lesion. Agree that FAP is a concern, and in fact, the primary differential diagnosis in cases of Torpodo. I've copied a report form Ocular Surgery News (2013) that describes this well (see below link):

      Looks more like pigmented ocular fundus lesion (rather than nevus), similar to what I have seen in patients with FAP. If other pigmented lesions, consider testing.
