Background: To report an association between choroidal nevus and polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) in three patients. Case presentation: We have encountered 3 isolated patients in our center presenting with subretinal exudation and a choroidal nevus that were thoroughly evaluated by slit lamp biomicroscopy, fundus photos, Fluorescein angiography (FA), indocyanine green angiography (ICG), B-scan ultrasound, and optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT - Heidelberg). The classic features of choroidal neovascularization seen on PVC were present in all 3 patients, all of whom had a substantial response to intravitreous antiangiogenic agent. OCT, Fluorescein and ICG Angiography, and Fundus autofluorescence (FAF) revealed similar findings in all cases. Discussion and conclusions: We have identified a clinical pattern of PCV and choroidal nevus that can be diagnosed early using fluorescein angiography, ICG and OCT.
