We present a case of a 28-year-old male who was diagnosed with bilateral tubercular multifocal choroiditis with intraretinal neovascularization adjacent to an area of choroiditis in the left eye. We present OCTA features of the neovascular complex before and after 4 months of treatment with anti-tubercular therapy and oral steroids. We speculate that the intraretinal neovascular complex noted in our case may be due to VEGF released by the underlying ischemic choroid.
