Choroidal nevi are benign fundus lesions that require regular follow with documentation. Conventional color fundus photography (CFP) has traditionally been used to images these lesions. Multicolor imaging (MCI) available on Spectralis spectral domain optical coherence tomography system is increasingly been tested vis-à-vis conventional CFP in various retinal diseases. We present data of the right eye of a 59-year-old gentleman with choroidal nevus who underwent conventional CFP as well as MCI. Nevus appeared orange red on MCI and its size appeared larger than the same measured on conventional CFP. We also report infrared reflectance and near infrared autofluorescence features of choroidal nevus.
