We report the imaging characteristics of focal choroidal excavation (FCE) and associated choroidal neovascular membrane (CNVM) and interpret the probable etiopathogenesis of FCE through findings detected by multimodal imaging. FCE was found as an acquired entity in our case subsequent to the treatment of CNVM. In addition, the association of FCE with pachychoroid spectrum is reaffirmed through this case.
