This report describes a patient with redness in the left eye and normal vision. Routine fundus examination revealed bilateral macular sparing multiple yellow white retinal flecks situated beneath the retinal vessels. In the right eye, a torpedo-shaped hypopigmented lesion with a hyperpigmented temporal edge was observed temporal to the macula. There was mild thickening of retinal pigment epithelium on spectral-domain optical coherence tomography and retinal thinning and atrophy. Fundus autofluorescence showed multiple hyperfluorescent lesions around the posterior pole with a normal signal and a torpedo lesion of variegated autofluorescence in the right eye. The unusual coexistence of unilateral torpedo maculopathy with bilateral retinal flecks is being reported here.
