    Description
    14-year-old African American female who is asymptomatic, without any hx/fhx of FAP. One lesion seen in the mid-periphery of the right eye that is oval in shape, and has a "tail" (points to ora), and has the appearance and size of lesions described by Dr. Shields as torpedo maculopathy. I did ask Dr. Carol Shields about the case, and she said it is possible that this is a similar lesion in an odd location and noted that Gass published on one superiorly.
