Angioid streaks (ASs) are a rare ophthalmic condition resulting from pathological changes of the Bruch's membrane. AS appears as visible, irregular, crack-like dehiscences in Bruch's membrane with the typical appearance of dark reddish-brown bands which irradiate from the optic disc. Most patients may remain asymptomatic till the development of choroidal rupture or subretinal neovascularization. Despite 50% of cases being idiopathic, AS has been shown in association with numerous systemic diseases, the most commonly seen are pseudoxanthoma elasticum, Paget's disease of bone, and sickle cell disease. In this case report, we report an unusual case presenting Camurati–Engelmann disease (CED) associated with AS. To the best of our knowledge, there has been no report of an association between AS with CED disease. We aimed to explore the possible underlying causes in the development of AS in CED disease and propose theories from the existing literature
