A 39-year-old policeman complained of decreased bilateral central vision over the last two years. On examination, visual acuity was 20/40 and 20/400 in the right (OD) and left eye (OS), respectively, and fundoscopy revealed a bilateral hypopigmented macular lesion. Fluorescein and indocyanine green angiography demonstrated leakage and hyperintense spots, respectively, within the macular areas. At baseline, optical coherence tomography showed subretinal fluid in the OD and a conforming focal choroidal excavation in the OS. Focal choroidal excavation converted from conforming to nonconforming type at 4-month follow-up and then reversed to conforming type at 12-month follow-up, and was associated with incomplete retinal pigment epithelium and outer retina atrophy over the area of excavation. Pachyvessels were also evidenced in the choroid, without neovascularization. We report for the first time a case of focal choroidal excavation that progressed from conforming to nonconforming type and then reverted to its primary configuration (conforming type) in a patient with concurrent bilateral central serous chorioretinopathy.
