BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: To report a case of torpedo maculopathy with two distinct zones of the retinal pigment epithelium visualized on optical coherence tomography.
METHODS: Observational case report.
RESULTS: A 6-year-old female presented for a routine examination. Visual acuity was 20/20 bilaterally. Dilated fundus examination was normal in the right eye. Dilated fundus examination of the left eye showed a wedge-shaped area of hypopigmentation in the temporal macula. Optical coherence tomography macula of the left eye showed outer retinal cavitation with segmentation of the foveal retinal pigment epithelium into a superficial fluffy zone and a deeper hyperreflective zone.
CONCLUSION: This case helps contribute to the growing body of the torpedo maculopathy literature that may reveal different stages of the same disease evolving over time.
