Abstract

A patient with end-stage renal failure secondary to polycystic kidney disease was seen in the Eye Clinic for a corneal abrasion. Incidental fundal examination revealed bilateral multiple, small, raised, pale yellow sub-retinal nodules. Past medical history of inadequately treated pulmonary tuberculosis was obtained. Following initiation of anti-tuberculous therapy, the choroidal lesions resolved.
