FA detects area of CNVM- in ARMD as well as other conditions like myopia, angioid
Patients who had received or were receiving other anti-VEGF agents (bevacizumab and pegaptanib) or had undergone laser photocoagulation, verteporfin photodynamic therapy, or submacular surgery were excluded, as were those with CNV as a result of high myopia, angioid
streaks, hereditary disorders, or uveitis.
Patients with polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy, retinal angiomatous proliferation, maculopathy with myopic CNV, or CNV based on angioid
streaks or patients with axial length >26.0 mm or <23.0 mm were excluded from the study.
Multiple organs are affected, including the skin, eyes, and cardiovascular system, and the pathogenic changes include lax and inelastic skin, angioid
streaks in the retina, and mineralization of the internal elastic lamina of midsized arteries, including the cerebral, coronary, gastrointestinal and peripheral vasculature.
(8) Ophthalmic and systemic diseases commonly associated with drusen are retinitis pigmentosa, angioid
streaks, Usher syndrome, Noonan syndrome and Alagille syndrome.
Acute stroke after intravitreal bevacizumab to treat choroidal neovascularization due to angioid
streaks in pseudoxanthoma elasticum: A severe systemic adverse event after an off-label procedure.
The differential diagnosis of peripapillary choroidal neovascularization in young patients includes optic nerve drussen, peripapillary pseudopodal pigment epithelial and choroidal atrophy, angioid
streaks, pattern dystrophy, choroidal osteoma and uveitis.
Examination of the fundus did not reveal retinal de-tachment, angioid
streaks or other abnormalities.
There were angioid
streaks on funduscopic examination (FIGURE 2).
streaks, which occur in the retina, have been found more commonly in patients with Paget disease.
