Purpose: To describe the development of outer retinal tubulations in a patient with acute idiopathic maculopathy.

Methods: Chart review was performed on a single patient to collect all relevant clinical information and diagnostic imaging.

Results: A case of outer retinal tubulations in a patient with idiopathic maculopathy is documented.

Conclusion: Patients with acute idiopathic maculopathy may develop outer retinal tubulations similar to other entities that cause disturbance of retinal pigment epithelium or photoreceptors.

A patient diagnosed with acute idiopathic maculopathy is presented. His imaging findings at presentation, 1-month, and 7-year follow-up are shown. The patient subsequently developed outer retinal tubulations.
