Abstract

Purpose: To report a case of intraretinal neovascularization in a patient with ischemic central venous occlusion. Methods: Case report. Results: An 18-year-old white man presented with painless decreased vision in the right eye. Slit-lamp and biomicroscopic examinations revealed 360̊ of neovascularization of the iris, venous tortuosity, severe retinal hemorrhages, cotton wool spots, and massive edema of the macula. Conclusion: This is the first report of observed intraretinal neovascularization after central vein occlusion. Treatment with photocoagulation and intravitreal bevacizumab injection promoted revascularization after 1 year.
