Epiretinal neovascularization (ERN) is a novel optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) finding, which has been recently described in association with macular telangiectasia type 2 (MacTel 2). To our knowledge, this is the first documentation of ERN and coexistent proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR), which could be clinically confused with diabetic foveal neovascularization. OCTA is a useful tool to evaluate ERN and differentiate it from diabetic foveal neovascularization.
