The authors report a case of unilateral, stable, localized, and well-circumscribed choriocapillaris atrophy associated with retinal pigment epithelium dispersion and atrophy. The anterior segment was normal. Facial examination revealed a homolateral malar hypoplasia. The other eye was normal. The electrophysiologic study did not confirm pigmentary degeneration of the retina. The patient's history included a difficult delivery using obstetrical forceps. The authors review the main ocular lesions secondary to birth trauma. In this case, they favored a traumatic chorioretinal lesion secondary to an obstetrical traumatism. In this context, progressive facial hemiatrophy is the main differential diagnosis.
