  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 24-year-old female presented with typical funduscopic features of retinitis pigmentosa. Additionally, both eyes showed exudative retinal detachment in the inferior periphery, dilatation and tortuosity of retinal vessels, and retinal neovascularizations into the vitreous. Electroretinogram was nonrecordable. The visual field was constricted. Fluorescein angiography showed hyperpermeability of retinal vessels and avascular area in the periphery. It appeared that the retinal neovascularization was secondary to avascular retina in the peripheral fundus.
