No consensus exists for the treatment of retinopathy in incontinentia pigmenti (IP). Vascular ischemia leads to tractional retinal detachments if untreated. Ultra-widefield fluorescein angiography (FA) is used to follow the vascular status of the retina. A 13-week-old female with IP presented with bilateral retinal vascular occlusions in both eyes. Ultra-widefield FA showed reperfusion after treatment with intravitreal bevacizumab (IVB) and angiography-guided laser to the avascular retina. Anti-vascular endothelial growth factor treatment reduces neovascularization and allows for growth of retinal vessels. IVB and FA-guided laser to the avascular retina is an option in IP.
