Coexistent choroidal neovascular membrane and macular hole with serous retinal detachment in pathological myopia is a rare entity and may be quite challenging to manage. We present such a case managed with bevacizumab injection and vitrectomy. Although the retina was attached at the final follow-up, the visual outcome was poor, due to non-closure of hole.
