          Abstract

          We present the case of a 39-year-old man with bilateral sclerochoroidal calcification with primary hyperparathyroidism. Both the calcium and parathyroid hormone levels were elevated. Funduscopic examination revealed slightly elevated, multiple yellow lesions in both eyes. Fluorescein angiography showed filling defects of the choroid. Ultrasonography showed elevated, highly reflective lesions, and a computed tomography scan of the globe disclosed sclerochoroidal lesions with high density. We discuss the mechanism of sclerochoroidal calcification.
