This is a report of a 13-month-old boy who presented with a large unilateral fibrovascular stalk and bilateral peripheral retinal avascularity. Although consistent with both persistent fetal vasculature and familial exudative vitreoretinopathy, genetic testing disclosed a novel pathogenic mutation in the frizzled class receptor 4 gene (FZD4, c.427_428delCT).
