    Abstract

    We present an unusual case of polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) lying above the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) in a 60-year-old Caucasian female. PCV lesions are typically located beneath the RPE layer. However, they may rarely lie above the level of the RPE due to a discontinuity in the RPE and Bruch's membrane.
