Abstract

Choroidal nevi are the most common benign pigmented lesions of the fundus. Choroidal neovascularization is a rare complication of choroidal nevi. We report herein a young patient managed successfully with intravitreal bevacizumab injections for juxtapapillary choroidal neovascularization secondary to choroidal nevus simulating an inflammatory lesion.
