Abstract

Polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) is currently recognized as a phenotype of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). PCV is also known as” posterior uveal bleeding” and is believed to be a type of choroidal neovascularization, PCV often shows several unique clinical manifestations which appears to be different from typical neovascular AMD (tAMD). The primary abnormality involves the choroidal circulation, and the characteristic lesion is an inner choroidal vascular network of vessels ending up as an aneurysmal bulge or outward projection, visible clinically as a reddish orange, spheroid, polyp-like structure. The usual age of onset of polypoidal CNV is between 50 and 65 years with an average of 60.1 years. Here an unusual case of Polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy in 32 years male with history non-resolving enteric fever is being presented and pathogenesis, clinical features, investigation findings and management are discussed.
