A 21-year-old female was found to have bilateral multiple irregularly branching interconnected subretinal thread-like black lines radiating from the optic disc [Figure 1]a and [Figure 1]b. Visual acuity was 20/20 in either eye. The fundus fluorescein angiogram (FFA) images are given in [Figure 1]c and [Figure 1]d.
