Abstract. Purpose:To resent a report on short-term outcome of intravitreal injection of triamcinolone acetonide for diabetic macular edema. Case and Method:This study was made on 30 eyes of 24 cases with diabetic macular edema. The series comprised 17 males and 7 females. The age ranged from 42 to 83 years, average 64 years. Only five eyes were phakic. Panretinal photocoagulation had been performed on 24 eyes. Cases were followed up for 3 months after intravitreal injection of triamcinolone. Visual acuity was evaluated as logMAR. Results:Visual acuity averaged 0.6±0.24 before treatment, 0.3±0.24 one month and 0.3±0.23 3 months after treatment. The differences were significant(p<0.05). Foveal thickness averaged 486±151.48, 299.8±130.48 and 328.4±122.54 respectively. The differences were significant. Complications, including cataract, were absent throughout. Conclusion:Intravitreal injection was followed by visual acuity and decreased foveal thickness for 3 months in eyes with diabetic macular edema.
