Diabetic retinopathy, retinal vein occlusion, age related macular degeneration and macular hole are major retinal diseases that can lead to blindness and affect mainly the elderly population. All of them in a nutshell signify a basic underlying ischemic scenario with addition of detrimental effects of ageing. Published English literature does not reveal a case describing coexistence of all these pathologies simultaneously. This is, to our knowledge, is the first report with coexistent presentation of four major retinal abnormalities in a single eye, which are well highlighted on multimodal imaging modalities.
