Congenital retinal macrovessel (CRM) is an aberrant retinal blood vessel, which crosses the central macula and has tributaries extending on both sides of the horizontal raphe. It is a rare vascular condition, usually asymptomatic and incidentally discovered on routine fundus exam. This report describes a case of venous CRM associated with visual impairment secondary to choroidal nonvascular membrane (CNV). Treatment with intravitreal injection of aflibercept resulted in a favourable visual as well as anatomical outcome.
