- This 13-year-old girl presented with mild painless progressive blurring of central vision left eye over the past several months. Visual acuity was 20/25. In the affected left eye, retinal examination revealed a relatively flat, lightly pigmented lesion, with well-defined and scalloped edges. Clumps of associated pigment were noted. This OCT image shows subretiinal fluid just inferior to the fovea. Choroidal osteoma can be associated with the development of subretinal neovascularization (particularly at the edges of the osteoma).
