A seven-year-old boy with a known case of bilateral rubella retinopathy presented to us as part of his annual follow-up. Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) at presentation was 20/80 in the right eye and 20/600 in the left eye. On dilated fundoscopy, the right eye showed the presence of subretinal neovascular membrane (SRNVM), subretinal fluid, and classical salt-and-pepper retinopathy, all of which was documented by imaging. The left eye was poorly dilating and showed a pale disc. The right eye was treated with two doses of intravitreal ranibizumab at an interval of two months. Post-treatment examination showed resolution of SRNVM accompanied by scarring and significant improvement in BCVA.
