Angioid streaks refer to dehiscence in the Bruch’s membrane- retinal pigment epithelium complex. It appear as dark to brownish streaks radiating from optic nerve on funduscopy. It is a rare occurrence and pseudoxanthoma elasticum is the most common systemic association (59%-87%). Angioid streaks lead to avoidable blindness if associated with choroidal neovascular membrane. We report a case of biopsy proven Pseudoxanthoma elasticum with angioid streaks in a young lady. It is not reported in our country till now.
