The exact pathogenesis of parafoveal telangiectasia (PFT) is unknown, but various associations have been reported in literature such as diabetes and hypertension. Coexisting pathologies like diabetic retinopathy with PFT are not uncommon. We encountered a unique combination of PFT with multifocal central serous chorioretinopathy and choroidal hemangioma in a patient with diabetes mellitus. Multimodal imaging confirmed the findings and focal treatment to central serous chorioretinopathy leaks led to resolution of the subretinal fluid. This unique combination has been rarely reported so far. The long-term follow-up of such cases can help us to understand if there exists common pathogenesis of these varied diseases.
