A 55-years female, with a history of decreased Visual Acuity (VA) in the right eye since childhood (unknown reason). No known relevant personal antecedents.

On physical examination, she had a VA in the right eye (OD) <20/400 without correction and in the left eye (LE) 20/25 without correction.

The OD was in exotropia and, at biomicroscopy, there were no significant alterations.

Fundoscopy of the OD revealed a dysplastic optic disc, of large dimensions and excavated, especially inferiorly, in a bowl shape, with defined borders and preserved superior neuroretinal ring and normal vasculature; no glial tuft. Fundoscopy of the LE did not show significant alterations.

In the macular OCT, an atrophy of the external layers of the retina was verified, coinciding with the pigmentary alterations seen in the fundoscopy.
