  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 50-year-old female presented with progressive blurring of vision in her right eye since four days before. Her visual acuity was 0.01 right and 1.0 left. The affected fundus showed remarkable venous dilatation with seathing. The retina was diffusely opaque and edematous. Fluorescein angiography showed pronounced dye leakage from retinal vessels. Indocyanine green angiography showed dye leakage from retinal and choroidal vessels. Staining of retinal veins persisted 30 minutes after dye injection. After treatment with massive corticosteroids, the visual acuity improved to 0.9 10 weeks later. The present findings show that choroidal vessels are also affected in this disease entity. To our best knowledge, this case is the most aged one over previous reports.
