Background: This is perhaps the first report of frosted branch angiitis secondary to choroidal neovascularization (CNV) from China. We describe a case of frosted branch angiitis associated with macular CNV. Case: A 19-year-old Chinese woman complained of metamorphopsia and blurred vision in the right eye on August 27, 2002. Observations: Fluorescein angiography demonstrated CNV in the macula. Five months later, focal and atrophic choroidal scars were observed in the macular area. She complained of blurred vision again on April 14, 2003. Iridocyclitis and frosted branch angiitis were found in both fundi. Following treatment with systemic acycloguanosine and corticosteroids for 4 months, the fundi recovered almost completely. Conclusions: A case of frosted branch angiitis secondary to macular choroidal neovascularization is reported in a Chinese woman. The relation between frosted branch angiitis and CNV remains to be further explored.
