We report a case of retinitis pigmentosa (RP) coexisting with acute central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR) with pachychoroid phenotype. A 37-year-old male showed clinical features of RP in both eyes with acute CSCR in the right eye. Fundus fluorescein angiography showed ink blot hyperfluorescence with focal leakage, which was successfully treated with focal laser. Both eyes showed features of pachychoroid. RP and CSCR occurring simultaneously is very rare and there are only a few reports published in literature, but none with pachychoroid features. We report the first case of RP with acute CSR with pachychoroid phenotype and comment on its treatment outcome.
