The development of retinal and choroidal neovascularization in posterior uveitis is attributed to the angio-inflammatory drive with/without ruptures in the retinal pigment epithelium-Bruch's membrane complex. We report a unique case of a 15-year-old Asian-Indian female who developed immune retinitis post-typhoid fever along with simultaneous retinal and choroidal neovascularization. After ruling out infectious etiologies, she was initiated on a course of systemic steroids considering that the retinitis had immune-mediated pathogenesis. Subsequently, the retinitis lesion and choroidal neovascular membrane healed with scarring while the retinal neovascular complex showed fibrotic regression.
