We report a case of Type 2A idiopathic parafoveal telangiectasis treated by Photodynamic Therapy (PDT), resulting in retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) atrophy corresponding to the size of the laser spot used. This raises a doubt regarding the safety of photodynamic therapy in CNVM secondary to type 2A parafoveal telangiectasis.
