We bring a case of Coats disease in a young girl of seven years with no particular history following the examination of her fundus, she was brought by her mother for an ophthalmology consultation at the CHU -IOTA for a progressive decrease in her visual acuity. Clinical examination found visual acuity limited to light perception at ODG. Examination of the anterior segment is normal. His fundus after papillary dilation shows in the right eye an intravitreal hemorrhage associated with a serous retinal detachment and a retinal detachment in the inferior temporal, in the left eye we also have an intravitreal hemorrhage with a total retinal detachment. Fluorescein angiography notes inferotemporal retinal detachment, hyperpermeability of capillaries, venous dilation, retinal neovessels on the right and on the left and total retinal detachment. Faced with these clinical and paraclinical signs, we concluded that the form of Coats disease in ODG is complicated.
