Li, BS; Antonio Yaghy, MD; Carol L. Shields, MD A 36-year-old man was referred for evaluation after trauma to the left eye. He gave a history of familial ad- enomatous polyposis (FAP) diagnosed at age 15 years and treated with prophylactic colectomy. Fundus- copy revealed multifocal pigmented ocular fundus lesions at the level of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) in both eyes (Figure 1A and 1B). The lesions were haphazardly distributed, oval-shaped, variable in size, and with irregular borders. On fundus auto- fluorescence, the RPE lesions were hypoautofluores- cent and surrounded by trace hyperautofluorescence (Figure 1C and 1D). These findings represented the pigmented ocular fundus lesions that serve as a bio- marker for FAP.

(A, B) Multifocal pig- mented ocular fundus lesions at the level of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) were seen in both eyes on funduscopy. (C, D) Retinal pigment epithelium lesions appeared to be hypoautofluores- cent and were surrounded by trace hyperautofluorescence on fundus autofluorescence imaging.
