Abstract

A patient presented with subfoveal choroidal neovascularization associated with angioid streaks and was treated with three intravitreal injections of off-label bevacizumab (1.25 mg) in the right eye. Visual acuity improved from 20/70 to 20/20 and remained at this level for 32 months. In certain patients with choroidal neovascularization from angioid streaks, intravitreal be-vacizumab may produce normalization of visual acuity and macular anatomy for an extended period of time.
