Abstract

We report the retinal and choroidal manifestations using multimodal imaging in a patient with Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF-1). In this report, we describe the occurrence of a new retinal finding which we label as retinal café-au-lait macules. Also, we describe the superiority of multicolour imaging in comparison to colour fundus photography for identifying the retinal manifestations in NF-1.
