A 10-year-old male child presented with blunt force injury to his right eye (OD), with best-corrected visual acuity of 20/200. Posterior segment evaluation showed vitreous hemorrhage, Berlin's edema, and choroidal rupture anterior to the equator, parallel to the ora serrata, associated with subretinal hemorrhages. In this manuscript, we have reported a rare traumatic manifestation of multiple direct choroidal ruptures in a child. According to our knowledge, this has never been reported in the literature before. This manuscript also highlights the importance of vigilant optical coherence tomography (macula) follow-up in such scenarios, despite the choroidal rupture not involving the macular region.
