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 bevacizumab may produce normalization of visual acuity and macular anatomy for an extended period of time.
