Anderson Teixeira, Nilva Moraes, Michel Eid Farah and Pedro Paulo Bonomo: Choroidal neovascularization treated with intravitreal injection of bevacizumab (Avastin) in angioid streaks.
Laser treatment of choroidal neovascular membranes in angioid streaks.
7) Patients who have angioid streaks
on funduscopic examination but no visible skin lesions have received a diagnosis of pseudoxanthoma elasticum based on the biopsy results of scars or flexural skin of the neck or axillae.
Fundus fluorescein angiography (FFA) revealed angioid streaks and comet lesions in both eyes.
Fundoscopic examination revealed angioid streaks in both eyes, and subretinal fluid in the foveal area and subretinal hemorrhage inferonasal to the fovea in the left eye.
Angioid streaks result from calcification of the elastic fibers in Bruch's membrane of the retina.
Ocular findings were bilateral angioid streaks and retinal pigmentary changes, though patient was asymptomatic.
Angioid streaks are full thickness breaks in calcified and thickened Bruch's membrane.
The prognosis in angioid streaks is guarded due to high recurrence rates being up to 70%, and development of new CNVMs despite using various treatment modalities (17)
Can you see the sub-retinal, vessel-like abnormalities radiating from the disc that are typical of angioid streaks
