Case 8-30. Choroidal Neovascularization
A 70-year-old man had a visual acuity of 20/60 in his left eye associated with the clinical diagnosis of age-re-la ted macular degeneration with choroidal neovascularization. Subretinal fibrosis was observed temporal to the fovea on slit-lamp examination (A), I luorescein angiography (B) revealed an area of relative hypofluorescence with a surrounding rim of hyperfluorescence, A small amount of late leakage was noted centrally.
A horizontal OCT image (C) was acquired through the fovea and showed fragmentation and fusiform thickening of the red band corresponding to the retinal pigment epithelium and chor io capillar is, consistent with a small choroidal neovascular membrane. No apparent subretinal fluid or hemorrhage was identified.
