We report a case with progressive visual loss whose ophthalmic examination revealed bilateral optic atrophy and choroidal folds in the left eye. Neuroimaging demonstrated a sellar mass compressing the optic chiasm and the left optic nerve was to be stretched. We assume the traction created on the optic nerve by the mass stretched the optic nerve and caused the choroidal folds.
