A 62-year-old male presented with impaired vision in his left eye of two months'duration, He manifested typical features of angioid streaks in both eyes, Fibrovascular membrane with edema and hemorrhage was present in the right eye, The visual acuity was 0.04 right and 0.6 left. Pseudoxanthoma elasticum was present in the neck and axillar fossa. He developed massive vitreous hemorrhge in the right eye after follow-up for 16 months, Vitrectomy performed 2 months later showed enlarged fibrovascular membrane and subretinal hematoma extending to the inferior periphery. A large tear of retinal pigment epithelium was also present. The findings show that massive vitreous hemorrhage may occur as complica-tion of angioid streaks when associated with disciform macular degeneration and subretinal hematoma.
