Abstract

A patient with solitary congenital hypertrophy of the retinal pigment epithelium demonstrated a striking choroidal cavitation on spectral- domain optical coherence tomography (OCT). Although photoreceptor atrophy overlying congenital hypertrophy of the retinal pigment epithelium has been described on time-domain OCT, this patient manifested a previously unrecognized tomographic feature.
