Abstract

PURPOSE: To report a case of vascularized idiopathic epiretinal membrane including the multimodal imaging. METHODS: Findings on clinical examination, color fundus photography, spectral-domain optical coherence tomography, optical coherence tomography angiography, and fluorescein angiography. RESULTS: Sixty-three-year-old woman with a previous rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) who presented with an asymptomatic idiopathic neovascular complex below an epiretinal membrane. It was assessed with fluorescein angiography, OCT and OCT-A. The vascularized ERM was already present previously to the retinal detachment. CONCLUSION: Our case report describes an example of idiopathic epiretinal membrane complicated by neovascularization; we hypothesized hypertension could be one of the factors in this case, as it may lead to decreased retinal perfusion and upregulation in vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). Multimodal imaging can help in detecting neovascularized ERM.
