The case is a 32-year-old male patient, previously known as Alport syndrome, with no dots and flecks retinopathy or any other retinal lesions in his fundus. Optical coherence tomography showed bilateral thinning of the neurosensory retina in temporal region of the macula. In this case, thining of temporal area of the macula at the site of inner retina was obvious especially for territory of ganglionic cell layer and inner plexiform layer as well. In outer retina there was no difference in thickness between nasal and temporal part of the macula.
