Clinical-Medical Image

Myelinated retinal nerve fiber layer (MNFL) is a rare congenital anomaly that can appear as opaque greyish-white striated patches on the superficial retina with soft edges that obscure retinal details. It is usually a unilateral condition. Most of the cases are found in the disc. It remains stable over time and has no impact on visual development. Although, on occasions, it is associated with other pathological conditions such as myopia, amblyopia or strabismus, which can darken the visual prognosis. We present a case of a 45-year-old man who attended a routine ophthalmological evaluation after starting treatment with hydroxychloroquine for rheumatic condition. Fundus examination showed papillary myelin fibers in both eyes, predominantly in the right eye. The rest of the examination, such as OCT and visual field tests were unremarkable (Figure 1).
