Skull base chondrosarcomas are rare intracranial neoplasms. Although peripapillary choroidal neovascularization (CNV) has infrequently been noted in papilledema secondary to other pathologies, juxtafoveal CNV following intracranial chondrosarcomas have never been reported earlier. We report a case of a 50-year-old lady with operated intracranial chondrosarcoma who presented with progressive diminution of vision in the right eye. Detailed ophthalmic evaluation and ancillary investigations confirmed the diagnosis of papilledema associated juxtafoveal CNV in the right eye, and she received two intravitreal bevacizumab injections with guarded outcome. We have also described the probable differentials of the current case and highlighted the need for a high index of suspicion among neurologists as well as ophthalmologists for this rare but vision-threatening complication.
