We report the two cases who presented with sudden decreased vision and sub-internal limiting membrane (ILM) hemorrhage without a history of Valsalva maneuver, trauma, or hematological disorders. Multimodal imaging revealed the features suggestive of polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) in addition to the sub-ILM hemorrhage. A provisional diagnosis of sub-ILM hemorrhage secondary to PCV was made and was treated with intravitreal Bevacizumab injection. Treatment resulted in the improved visual acuity along with the resolution of the sub-ILM hemorrhage. These cases highlight the possibility of isolated sub-ILM hemorrhage as a presenting fundus finding in PCV, which is previously unreported. This report also highlights the importance of multimodal imaging in diagnosing chorioretinal disorders with unusual presentation.
