1. OCT-guided photodynamic therapy for angiographic occult CNV in pathologic myopia

    PURPOSE. Pathologic myopia (PM) is frequently complicated by choroidal neovascularization (CNV). Diagnosis is mainly clinical and angiographic but in recent years optical coherence tomography (OCT) has been noted to add important information. The authors report on the successfully OCT-guided photodynamic therapy (PDT) of an angiographic occult CNV complicating PM.METHODS. Observational case report. Fluorescein angiography with a confocal SLO (HRA, Heidelberg Engineering, Germany) and OCT Stratus (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Inc.) imaging were used for diagnosis and monitoring of the CNV. Standard PDT was performed.RESULTS. A highly myopic 17-year-old girl complained of a drop in visual acuity (VA) in left ...
