We report a rare case with a focal choroidal excavation (FCE) associated with foveoschisis. We describe the patient’s medical records and review the pertinent literature. A 51-year-old man had an FCE, which was considered to be associated with foveoschisis. Although the patient was treated with repeated intravitreal injection of perfluoropropane, foveoschisis persisted. FCE-linked foveoschisis may be noted in a low myopic patient. Gas tamponade failed to induce retinal reattachment, and aggressive surgical therapy may be needed in this condition.
