A 40-year-old woman presented with floaters in her right eye after trauma. Her uncorrected visual acuity was 20/20 OU, and biomicroscopy generated unremarkable findings in both eyes. Symmetric bone-spicule hyperpigmentation circumscribed to the inferior quadrants was seen on ophthalmoscopy, with a corresponding hypoautofluorescent area on fundus autofluorescence. An anatomofunctional correlation was observed in automated perimetry, with a superior bilateral altitudinal defect. Genetic testing revealed a mutation in the rhodopsin (RHO) gene (Figure).
