Abstract

Multifocal choroiditis is a vision‑threatening disease causing inflammation at the level of retinal pigment epithelium and outer retina. We present a unique case of unilateral multifocal choroiditis in a young nonmyopic male and its subsequent course. The patient developed visual loss due to the sub‑retinal neovascular membrane (SRNVM) in macula due to multifocal choroiditis. The SRNVM regressed with repeated intra‑vitreal injection of bevacizumab and the visual acuity improved from 6/24 at presentation to 6/12 after repeated intra‑vitreal injections of bevacizumab.
