Birdshot Retinochoroidopathy - Color Fundus Photograph

This montage color fundus photograph of the right eye of a 43 year old man with multiple sclerosis shows the typical yellow choroidal spots (white arrows) found in this disease. They have fuzzy borders and do not cause overlying retinal pigmentary changes. The patient was aymptomatic and had 20/20 visual acuity bilaterally. There is no recognized association of birdshot retinochoroidopathy and multiple sclerosis. The simultaneous occurrence of both in this patient is likely serendipitous.
