Combined retinal pigment epithelial and retinal hamartomas are focal malformations composed of overgrowth of mature glial, vascular and pigmented cells. They are usually solitary and unilateral. In addition there are only a few optical coherence tomographic reports of the same. We report a rare case of twin hamartomas in the same eye and their unique optical coherence tomographic findings that are different from previous reports.
