Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) in Post-traumatic Choroidal Neovascularization (CNV) - Case Report

Berger L., Schwenn O., Pfeiffer N.,
Johannes-Gutenberg-Universität Mainz, Universitäts-Augenklinik (Mainz)

Introduction: PDT is the therapy of choice in CNV due to age related macular degeneration or pathologic myopia. Data are available about the positive effect of PDT in secondary CNV due to ocular histoplasmosis syndrome or chorioretinitis scars. There are no data available about PDT in posttraumatic secondary CNV.
Case report: A 36 years old patient presented with traumatic choroidal rupture close to the fovea. 6 months later, visual acuity decreased to 20/200 due to a juxtafoveal CNV. PDT was performed. At 3 months follow up vision acuity remained at 20/200, the fluorescein angiography showed beginning of scarstaining.
Conclusions: This case demonstrates a beneficial effect of PDT in secondary CNV following traumatic choroidal rupture.
