A 24-year-old male was referred by another ophthalmologist with an interesting lesion in his left eye.

Case history

An asymptomatic 24-year-old man was referred by another ophthalmologist after an incidental finding of a fundus lesion in his left eye by his optometrist. The patient was healthy and had no family history of ocular disease.

Visual acuities were 6/6 in both eyes, with normal intraocular pressures. Anterior segments were normal. In the left eye there was a 5mm diameter yellow-orange round raised retinal lesion in the superotemporal periphery with dilated retinal vessels entering and exiting it (Figure 1). There were no signs of exudation and the right fundus was normal.
