A case of bilateral choroidal melanocytosis
The present case has been reported in the journal Ophthalmology.

A 50-year-old woman with no relevant medical or family history, presented asymptomatically with bilateral, midperipheral, confluent, deep-seated, choroidal hyperpigmentation. No other signs of abnormal pigmentation were found on her body. Slit-lamp biomicroscopy and gonioscopy were normal.

Dilated examination showed extensive, diffuse, midperipheral hyperpigmentation in an annular pattern, sparing the macula and optic nerve, with normal vasculature. The posterior margin had feathery edges and the lesions were bilaterally symmetrical, being slightly closer to the macula in the left eye.

Ultrasound was normal. OCT of both pigmented and nonpigmented areas detailed normal choroidal thickness and no retinal pigment epithelium reaction.
