A case of choroidal osteoma in a 20-year-old male diagnosed incidentally following dilated fundus examination is reported. The lesion was yellowish-orange in color with well-defined scalloped margins, present in the macular region above the inferior arcade, involving the fovea. Visual acuity was not affected, and there was complete absence of subjective symptoms in the eye. B-scan ultrasonography revealed findings consistent with a choroidal osteoma. Optical coherence tomography showed no retinal edema, retinal thinning or choroidal neovascular membrane. We report this case of choroidal osteoma with atypical presentation in a male and no visual involvement in spite of its location in the posterior pole involving the fovea.
