To report two cases of polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) complicating benign choroidal nevus and their tomographic features at spectral domain optical coherence tomography.
Medical Retina Service, Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Trust, London, UK
The two eyes of two patients with choroidal naevus and associated subretinal fluid underwent complete ophthalmological examination, spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT), fundus fluorescein angiography and Indocyanine green angiography.
SD-OCT tomographic images and indocyanine green angiography confirmed the diagnosis of PCV in both cases.
Ophthalmologists should be aware of this rare combination between choroidal nevus and PCV. If a choroidal nevus presents with subretinal fluid, this does not always herald malignant transformation and PCV should be ruled out so that the correct treatment can be planned.
