Abstract

This is a report of microvascular changes seen on fluorescein angiography (FA) and optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) in a 47-year-old man with macular telangiectasia Type 1 (MacTel1) after a 7-year bevacizumab (Avastin; Genentech, South San Francisco, CA) treatment course. OCTA allowed for clear visualization of most telangiectasias and aneurysms in the deep capillary plexus, with only few microvascular dilatations in the superficial plexus. In addition, areas of capillary dropout in the superficial and deep vascular plexa located near telangiectasias were documented on OCTA. Serial FA demonstrated reduced number of aneurysms and telangiectasias at the 7-year mark compared to baseline.
