We report the case of an asymptomatic unilateral pigmented paravenous retinochoroidal atrophy (PPRCA) in a 43-year-old patient. The right eye showed chorioretinal atrophy with bone-spicule-like pigmentations along the retinal veins. Visual acuity was 20/20 and perimetry revealed scotomas correlating to the chorioretinal atrophy. Electrophysiological examination showed decreased signals in ERG and EOG. Fundus autofluorescence and angiography findings are presented. Pathogenetically, a classification as hereditary retinal dystrophy (as in retinitis pigmentosa) as well as a post-inflammatory residuum are discussed.
