    Purpose: The aim of this study is to report the case of a patient diagnosed with butterfly pattern dystrophy (BPD), which during yearly follow-up visits developed a concomitant pachychoroidal neovasculopathy (PNV). Methods: Case report focusing on the role multimodal imaging in patients with pattern dystrophies (PDs) Case report: We describe a case of a 52-year-old woman,which was initially diagnosed with BPD by fundus examination, fundus autofluorescence and optical coherence tomofraphy findings. Interestingly, during yearly follow-up visits, the presence of a thickened choroid bilaterally associated with the onset of concomitant choroidal neovascularizations (CNVs) in the right eye was made possibile by adopting multimodal imaging, in particular optical coherence tomography angiography.
