A rare case of a choroidal vascular aneurysm arising from the short posterior ciliary artery is reported in a 40-year-old woman. The aneurysm was detected by fluorescein angiography. It caused recurrent choroidal hemorrhage with blindness as the outcome. The diagnosis of aneurysm would have been missed without fluorescein angiography. A search should be made for choroidal vascular aneurysm in cases of spontaneous choroidal and vitreous hemorrhage both clinically (using fluorescein angiography) and histopathologically (in the event of enucleation of the eyeball).
