Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Findings in Sclerochoroidal Calcification

Ileana M. Nieves-Martínez, Victor M. Villegas, Stephen G. Schwartz


Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) is a modern non invasive imaging technique that may aid in the evaluation of retinal diseases through the assessment of chorioretinal vasculature. The literature regarding OCT-A in sclerochoroidal calcification is scarce. We present the case of a 57-year-old female who was referred to the clinic due to an atypical choroidal lesion in the right eye. OCT-A showed an apparent decrease in the vascular flow of the choroidal/choriocapillaris layers and an apparent increase in the vascular flow of the deep retinal layers. A mass effect may be seen in OCT-A en face imaging that may create artifactual vascular flow pattern. This case reports the first OCT-A findings of sclerochoroidal calcification.
