Abstract

PURPOSE:

To investigate sclerochoroidal calcification in a patient with Gitelman syndrome.

METHOD:

Case report. Bilateral fundus abnormalities observed in a 58-year-old woman were documented with fluorescein angiography and tomodensitometry.

RESULTS:

Symmetric yellow-white subretinal lesions were observed in the superotemporal midperiphery of the fundus of each eye. Tomodensitometry examination was consistent with calcium deposition. The medical history included Gitelman syndrome. Sclerochoroidal calcification probably resulted from the severe hypomagnesemia.

CONCLUSION:

Gitelman syndrome may be a cause of sclerochoroidal calcification.
