Torpedo maculopathy is a rare congenital abnormality of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE). It is characterized by unilateral, solitary, well circumscribed, hypopigmented, horizontally oval ‘torpedo’ shaped chorioretinal lesion. It should be considered as differential diagnosis for macular hypopigmented lesions. Considered as solitary, there have been rare case reports of double torpedo and satellite torpedo lesions. Here we report a case of Torpedo maculopathy with satellite lesion with its clinical features and Optical Coherence Tomography(OCT) findings.
