Abstract

Juvenile xanthogranuloma (JXG) is an uncommon non-Langerhans cell histiocytic disorder that occurs predominantly in infants. Traditional treatment of ocular JXG involves the administration of topical or local corticosteroids. We treated 2 children with JXG refractory to local corticosteroid therapy with off-label intraocular bevacizumab. To our knowledge, this is the first report of successful use of bevacizumab for ocular JXG.
