Gyrate atrophy is a rare metabolic disease characterized by hyperornithinemia, typical retinal and choroidal lesions, high myopia with marked astigmatism, early cataract formation, and autosomal recessive inheritance pattern. In this paper, we describe a 12-year-old boy presenting with high myopia and gyrate fundus lesions, in addition to 10-times elevated serum ornithine level.
