Neurosensory retinal detachment (NSD) is a component of diabetic retinopathy. It is associated with other features like diffuse retinal thickening and cystoid macular edema (CME). The present report describes imaging features and the outcome of disproportionately large NSD in the left eye of a 61-year-old lady having proliferative diabetic retinopathy. The NSD was accompanied by minimal intraretinal edema and a choroidal filling defect on fluorescein angiography. There was near complete resolution of NSD with intravitreal ranibizumab. Disproportionately large NSD with minimal intraretinal cystic changes may be considered as a sign of diabetic choroidopathy.
