Abstract

Purpose:

To report a case of focal choroidal excavation and choroidal neovascularization in the setting of pachychoroid disease.

Methods:

Multimodal imaging, including fundus photography, fundus autofluorescence, enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography, indocyanine green angiography, and en face structural and angiographic optical coherence tomography.

Results:

The authors describe a 39-year-old female with moderately high myopia presenting with focal choroidal excavation and associated choroidal neovascularization. Multimodal imaging demonstrated pachychoroid features with dilated choroidal vessels surrounding the lesion. Optical coherence tomography angiography showed Type 2 neovascularization.

Conclusion:

Some cases of focal choroidal excavation and associated neovascularization may be related to structural abnormalities of the associated choroidal vasculature.
