Retinal astrocytic hamartoma (RAH) was incidentally detected in an 18-year-old girl with retinitis pigmentosa. Yellowish multinodular lesion was seen in the right eye inferonasal to optic disk [Figure 1]a. On fundus autofluorescence, the lesion was hyper autofluorescent [Figure 1]b. Cross-sectional optical coherence tomography (OCT) showed “moth-eaten” hyporeflective spaces suggestive of type 3 RAH [Figure 1]c. En face OCT angiography showed absence of vascular signal [Figure 1]d. Electroretinogram of both the eyes showed reduced rod and cone response. This report demonstrates the rare association of RAH and retinitis pigmentosa, similar to the previous reports.,
