Suprachoroidal hemorrhage (SCH) is a dreaded complication of intraocular surgery. We report a case of a 65-year-old male with left eye primary angle-closure glaucoma and idiopathic elevated episcleral venous pressure with neovascularization of the iris. Due to uncontrolled intraocular pressure even after maximum medical therapy, trabeculectomy with mitomycin C was planned. Preoperative intracameral bevacizumab was given to avoid intraoperative bleeding. Postinjection, localized SCH was noted, which settled spontaneously on conservative management. A combination of ocular and systemic risk factors, such as arteriosclerosis and idiopathic elevated episcleral venous pressure accentuated by intraoperative hypotony during intracameral injection, led to SCH. There are no previous reports of a localized SCH following intracameral bevacizumab.
