    Optical Coherence Tomography as an Alternative for  Diagnosing Polypoidal Choroidal Vasculopathy in  Developing Countries

    Introduction: Polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) is a variant of neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD). In clinical practice, PCV is frequently differentiated from nAMD or other retinal diseases using imaging modalities like optical coherence tomography, especially in ophthalmology clinics and hospitals which do not have access to indocyanine green angiography (ICGA), the gold standard in diagnosing PCV. As such, definite diagnosis of PCV is not possible in some cases and the actual prevalence of PCV remains unknown. Case series presentation: We have described a report of four patients without significant past medical history who presented with acute central or paracentral scotoma ...
