A 41-year-old female presented to us with blurred vision in both eyes for the past 3 months. She was a known hypertensive and was treated for malignant hypertension in the past. She was diagnosed as hypertensive retinopathy with choroidopathy. Multiple hypopigmented linear streaks (Siegrist streaks) within the arcade and in the form of islands outside the arcades were noted. Fundus autofluorescence was performed to understand and classify the appearance and resolution of these streaks. Herein, we report the role of autofluorescence in describing Siegrist streaks secondary to hypertensive choroidopathy.
