Abstract Details


To present a 13-year-old female patient with choroidal neovascular membrane secondary to choroidal osteoma treated with aflibercept


The study was conducted in a tertiary care centre in the Aegean region of Turkey


Interventional case report


Subretinal yellow-white lesion extending to temporal retinal vascular arcades was detected in the right eye of a 13-year-old girl with a history of decreased vision for two years. Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was 0.1 and 1.0 in the right and the left eye, respectively. A small subretinal haemorrhage along with retinal elevation were also detected in the macula of the right eye. Fluorescein angiography revealed late hyperfluorescence of the osteoma, fluorescein blockade due to subretinal haemorrhage and small leakage adjacent to the haemorrhage. On optical coherence tomography, a well-defined choroidal lesion, intraretinal and subretinal fluid accumulation were detected. The inner part of the lesion showed hyperreflective layers and outer part of lesion showed spongioform pattern. She was treated with intravitreal 2 mg aflibercept injection with the diagnosis of choroidal neovascular membrane secondary to choroidal osteoma. Fluid accumulation disappeared and visual acuity improved to 0.4 at the first month after the first injection


: Intravitreal injection of aflibercept may improve vision and may induce resorption of subretinal fluid in cases with choroidal osteoma complicated with choroidal neovascular membrane
