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.
