Abstract

We describe a case of acute left-sided visual loss in a 4-year-old boy. CT showed hyperdense retinal detachment with a tiny calcification, and MR imaging showed subretinal hyperintensity on both T1- and T2-weighted images. Proton MR spectroscopy showed a large peak between 1 and 1.6 ppm that we believe corresponds mainly to lipids, which are characteristic of the exudate present in Coats disease.
