Abstract: We prove that the Dirichlet fundamental polyhedron for a cyclic group generated by a unipotent or hyperbolic element $ \gamma $ acting on complex hyperbolic $ n$-space centered at an arbitrary point $ w$ is bounded by the two hypersurfaces equidistant from the pairs $ w,\gamma w$ and $ w,{\gamma ^{ - 1}}w$ respectively. The proof relies on a convexity property of the distance to an isometric flow containing $ \gamma $.
