Issue Highlights


Fundoscopy revealed bilateral peripapillary atrophy and multiple punched-out scars on the peripheral retina, consistent with presumed ocular histoplasmosis syndrome (A, B). An elevated, sharply demarcated, deeply pigmented lesion surrounded by chorioretinal scars was seen at the superonasal periphery of the left eye (B). Vitreous pigment clumps were also present. Ocular ultrasound revealed a dome-shaped solid lesion with intermediate-to-high internal reflectivity and a thickness of 3.2 mm. The lesion did not seem to arise from the choroid (C). OCT demonstrated an abrupt retinal elevation with complete posterior shadowing (D).
