We report a case of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) in an infant with oculocutaneous albinism (OCA), with the challenges faced in diagnosis, and subsequent management. Poor fundus contrast and blanching of retinal vessels on indentation caused significant visualization problems in detection of ridge and extraretinal vessel proliferation. Careful examination revealed zone 2 Stage 3 ROP with preplus disease in both eyes. Laser photocoagulation was attempted, but laser uptake was poor. The disease regressed over 3-week close follow-up. ROP along with OCA is a rare finding. There is a need for high index of suspicion and caution while screening and managing such babies.
