The development of secondary choroidal neovascularization in Best's disease is rare in the pediatric population. A retrospective review of pediatric patients with choroidal neovascularization secondary to Best's disease was performed. The patients' courses and treatments were recorded. Three patients with choroidal neovascularization were identified. All had decreased vision and were treated in an individual manner. Vision improved after treatment in all patients. Treatment may hasten resolution of choroidal neovascularization and improve vision.
