Abstract

Peripheral exudative haemorrhagic chorioretinopathy (PEHCR) is considered a variant of polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy. It may have varried presentations and systemic associations. We present a case of PEHCR which dramatically responded to intravitreal steroid and ziv-aflibercept injection. This case not only highlights the promising role of combination therapy with intravitreal steroids and ziv-aflibercept but also the need to look for any associated systemic comorbidity.
