    MASSIVE RETINAL NEOVASCULARIZATION IN VON HIPPEL–LINDAU DISEASE ANTI–VASCULAR ENDOTHELIAL GROWTH FACTOR, VITRECTOMY, IMMUNOHISTOCHEMISTRY, AND OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY FEATURES

    Purpose: To report a rare presentation of ocular von Hippel–Lindau disease associated with a massive epiretinal vascular proliferation over the macula removed by vitrectomy and submitted to histological analysis. Methods: Interventional case report. Results: A 13-year-old woman with von Hippel–Lindau disease reported progressive visual loss in the right eye over the preceding 6 months. Best-corrected visual acuity was 20/100 in the right eye. Fundoscopy showed retinal neovascularization (RNV) with macular traction and a small superotemporal hemangioblastoma. Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography confirmed increased macular thickness and macular traction secondary to RNV. Bevacizumab was injected intravitreally, resulting in partial ...
