Abstract

Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) may lead to late-developing complications due to the abnormal vitreoretinal interface. In this case report, three adult patients (ages 39 years, 62 years, and 64 years) with a history of prematurity underwent imaging with ultra-widefield fluorescein angiography (UWFFA). The UWFFA demonstrated late peripheral vascular hyperfluorescence in all three patients, perivascular leakage in two of the patients, hyperfluorescent foveal avascular zone in two of the patients, peripheral avascular retina in two of the patients, vasoproliferative tumor in one of the patients, peripheral neovascularization in one of the patients, and vascular anastomosis in one of the patients. Descriptive analysis of the images is reported. The authors concluded UWFFA reveals details in adults with history of ROP that may gain importance during the follow-up or in the surgical management of these patients; however, prospective studies are needed.
