Abstract

Purpose:

To describe a case of bilateral choroidal excavation in a patient with juvenile localized scleroderma.

Methods:

Case report.

Results:

An asymptomatic 12-year-old boy with localized scleroderma presented for examination and was found to have bilateral areas of choroidal excavation temporal to the fovea.

Conclusion:

Previous reports of ocular complications of localized scleroderma have primarily described adnexal and anterior segment changes. This is the second report of choroidal changes in a patient with localized scleroderma, and the first in a pediatric patient.
