    Lesions seen on indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) can be mistakenly identified as polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV), resulting in incorrect management. This video reviews some common misdiagnoses of PCV from standardized confocal scanning laser ICGA images graded by a central reading center. Cases initially identified as PCV but subsequently found to be incorrect included microaneurysms, retinal angiomatous proliferation, retinochoroidal anastomosis, retinal pigment epithelial staining, choroidal neovascularization from age-related macular degeneration, and disciform scar. Detailed grading using stereoimaging and dynamic ICGA can reliably distinguish pseudo-PCV from true PCV.
