Clinical Case: Male 68 years of age who presents for presenting nictalopia, decreased visual acuity of 6 months of evolution, fundus is performed by pharmacological dilatation observing findings suggestive of choroideremia, so it is confirmed by imaging modalities.
Conclusion: The imaging modalities allow the early and accurate diagnosis of choroideremia to be established, thus reducing the cost of genetic testing without detracting from the value of the same, provided that it is possible to perform them.
