Asymmetric lesions of congenital hypertrophy of retinal pigment epithelium were seen bilaterally in an asymptomatic otherwise healthy 20-year-old female. Lesions in the right eye were of classical “bear-track” configuration progressing to larger “foliage”-shaped lesions (atypical to find different morphologies in the same eye); the left eye had sectoral “bear-track” lesions [Figure 1].[1] Bilateral CHRPE lesions are associated with chances of familial adenomatous polyposis, for which the subject was screened. The subject was advised refraction and an yearly follow-up for retinal and gastrointestinal evaluation.
