Peripapillary pachychoroid syndrome (PPS) is a novel variant in the pachychoroid disease spectrum in which pachychoroid features are more prominent around the optic nerve head and are associated with intraretinal and/or subretinal fluid. The choroidal thickness in PPS is characterized by its atypical distribution with nasal macular choroid being thicker than the temporal counterpart. There are a few case reports of PPS in the literature that describe the morphological features of PPS but the management protocols are yet to be established. We hereby describe the clinical course of a 54-year-old gentleman who came to us with complaints of a gradual decrease in vision. On basis of multimodal imaging, a diagnosis of PPS was made. Since the patient was symptomatic, he was treated with intravitreal aflibercept which showed a favorable anatomical and functional outcome.
