BACKGROUND: Idiopathic Juxtafoveolar Retinal Telangiectasis (IJRT) is a retinal vascular anomaly, characterized by irregular dilation and incompetence of retinal vessels. Although the etiology of the condition is unknown, its various presentations have been characterized into three groups. Treatment includes laser photocoagulation and observation and is based on disease classification. CASE REPORT: The case report presents a patient with Group 2A, Stage 3 IJRT. The clinical appearance, differential diagnosis, and management of IJRT and its subgroups are discussed. CONCLUSION: Appropriate classification of IJRT is essential to the successful management of this condition.
