A 17-year female was referred for complaints of blurring and decreased vision in the right eye. The patient underwent fundus examination, optical coherence tomography and B-scan ultrasonography. A well-defined, yellow-orange colored lesion was present in the posterior pole. This lesion created an echodense lesion on B-scan even with low gain. The patient was diagnosed with choroidal neovascularization (CNV) associated with choroidal osteoma. The patient was treated with seven consecutive intravitreal anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) injections over 14 months. Intravitreal anti-VEGF was effective for CNV associated with choroidal osteoma. Long- term follow-up is necessary to resolve the fluids, possible development of CNV, and possible of bilateral occurrence.
