Purpose: To report a case of sclerochoroidal calcifications and describe the appearance of these lesions using optical coherence tomography with enhanced depth imaging (EDI-OCT) technology. Design: Case Report Methods: An 85-year-old patient who presented with bilateral retinal lesions suspected to be metastases was evaluated with slit-lamp biomicroscopy, funduscopy, fluorescein angiography, B-scan ultrasonography (U/S), and EDI-OCT. Results: B-scan U/S demonstrated echo-dense consolidations in the choroid bilaterally with acoustic shadowing consistent with sclerochoroidal calcifications. EDI-OCT revealed hyper-reflective lesions with decreased reflectivity posterior to the lesion. Conclusions: Sclerochoroidal calcifications should be included in the differential of choroidal masses, given their unique appearance on EDI-OCT.
