Retinal angiomatous proliferation (RAP) has emerged as an increasinglyrecognized variant of neovascular age-related macular degeneration.1,2 Retinal angiomatous proliferationlesions are suggested to begin as fronds of intraretinal neovascularization.These fronds may grow into the subretinal space causing serous retinal pigmentepithelial (RPE) detachments and may ultimately anastamose with choroidalneovascular complexes. We report a case of a RAP lesion with an associatedserous RPE detachment in which the optical coherence tomogram (OCT) providesverification of the intraretinal location of the neovascularization.
