A 66-year-old male patient presented with decreased vision in both eyes following episode of Chikungunya fever. Examination revealed bilateral retinal lesions with stippled pigmentary changes at the level of the choriocapillaris, involving the macula in the left eye. The retinopathy consisted of outer retinal disruption and retinochoroidal flow abnormalities detected using with additional imaging, including spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT), autofluorescence, and OCT angiography (OCTA). The index case report describes unique OCTA findings in both eyes of an elderly male secondary to Chikungunya fever. Using the technique of OCTA, insights into the mechanisms of visual damage in viral retinopathies such as Chikungunya fever can be understood.
