Unilateral Acute Idiopathic Maculopathy (UAIM) is a rare disorder of Retinal Pigmentary Epithelium (RPE) that mainly affects the young healthy male. The variability of this disease can masquerade different entity, so diagnosis becomes cumbersome. We are reporting a case of young healthy male, who has reported to us with gross diminution of vision from right eye. Right eye examination showed a grayish yellow lesion with fluffy margins on the macula. Based on Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and Fundus Fluorescein Angiography (FFA) findings, he was diagnosed as a case of UAIM. He was started on topical anti-inflammatory eye drops with subsequent improvement of his vision.
