J Bahria Uni Med Dental Coll Jan ;1(2):68-70.

Gyrate atrophy is rarely seen in ophthalmological practice. We diagnosed one such case in our set-up. A middle aged male presented with decreased vision. Fundus showed patches of well-demarcated, scalloped atrophy of the pigment epithelium and choriocapillaris. Fundus fluorescein angiography revealed sharp contrast between normal and abnormal tissue which was typical characteristic of changes of Gyrate atrophy. Treatment includes pyridoxine (vitamin B6) and special diet. Prognosis usually remains poor and is a cause of disability. This case was being reported for general awareness.
