In this case report, we present a patient with thrombocytopenia secondary to idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), whose fundus appearance had features of diabetic retinopathy with macular edema. The macular edema did not respond to multiple intravitreal Anti-Vascular endothelial growth factor (Anti-VEGF), contrary to diabetic cystoid macular edema (CME). He was systemically investigated and was found to have ITP, and its management resulted in complete regression of the hemorrhages and CME.
