A 34-year-old lady on treatment for idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) presented with blurring of vision in the left eye for 3 months. Her best-corrected visual acuity was 20/20 and 20/200 in the right and left eye, respectively. Examination revealed papilledema with an orange-red lesion, temporal to the optic disc with subretinal fluid (SRF) in the left eye [Figure 1]a and [Figure 1]b. Fundus fluorescein angiography was suggestive of bilateral disc edema [Figure 1]c and [Figure 1]d along with a peripapillary choroidal neovascular membrane in the left eye (PCNVM) [Figure 1]d and [Figure 1]e.

The left eye shows an orange-red lesion of approximately half-disc diameter temporal to the optic disc along with macular hard exudates and subretinal fluid (b). Fundus fluorescein angiography image showing bilateral early disc hyperfluorescence (c and d). The lesion in the left eye showed early hyper-fluorescence in a lacy pattern increasing in size and intensity through the late phase suggestive of a classic CNVM (d and e)|

The patient was treated with an anti-VEGF injection, resulting in resolution of SRF and improvement in vision [Figure 2]a and [Figure 2]b.

PCNVM is extremely rare in IIH. The prevalence of PCNVM in IIH has previously been reported as 0.53%., Self-involution with treatment for IIH is possible, but anti-VEGF injection is required in vision-threatening diseases.,
