Purpose: To describe a case of persistent placoid maculopathy (PPM) associated with juxtafoveal choroidal neovascularization (CNV) treated with intravitreal bevacizumab injection (IVBI). Design: Interventional case report. Methods: A 60-year-old patient referred for sudden vision loss was diagnosed with PPM complicated by a disciform scar in the right eye and juxtafoveal CNV in the left eye, undergoing 2 IVBIs. Results: Best-corrected visual acuity passed from 20/32 to 20/20 after 2 IVBIs, with complete resolution of intraretinal and subretinal fluid and disappearance of fluorescein leakage. Conclusions: IVBI is a promising treatment option for juxtafoveal CNV secondary to PPM.
