A 42-year-old man with Hunter syndrome developed bilateral visual field loss. Visual field testing demonstrated bilateral ring scotomata that corresponded to areas of thinning seen on standard resolution optical coherence tomography. High-speed, ultrahigh resolution optical coherence tomography, capable of 3.5-micron axial resolution, showed a loss of photoreceptors outside the fovea and cystoid spaces within the inner nuclear, ganglion cell, and outer nuclear layers. These results were consistent with histopathologic features that have been reported previously in patients with Hunter syndrome. Optical coherence tomography could be used as a diagnostic modality to monitor patients with Hunter syndrome and to detect subclinical forms of disease.
