Torpedo maculopathy is a rare, typically singular, asymptomatic, unilateral torpedo-shaped lesion located in the temporal macula. The pathophysiology of these lesions is currently unknown but is thought to occur during embryogenesis. Even rarer are cases of torpedo maculopathy with two lesions in the affected eye, with only one prior case identified in the literature. The authors present a case of double torpedo maculopathy with accompanying optical coherence tomography, fundus photos, and fundus auto-fluorescence imaging over a 1.5-year follow-up period. Although our case further establishes the non-progressive nature of this phenotype, the exact pathophysiology warrants further investigation.
