  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We followed up, for about 8 years, a 71-year-old male with age-related macular degeneration in his right eye. A plaque was first detected 4 years after start of observation. It appeared as an poorly-defined hyperfluorescent spot during the late phase of indocyanine green angiography. Its size was one disc diameter. The plaque underwent spontaneous resolution associated with disappearance of exudative lesions. The finding seemed to show that poorly-defined plaque may not correspond to neovascularization itself but may reflect a potential site where choroidal neovascularization may grow.
