Abstract

We report the case of a premature infant with end-organ failure who developed high-risk retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) bilaterally and was treated with intravitreal bevacizumab (IVB) injection therapy with regression noted on follow-up clinical examination. The infant died 3 weeks after IVB injection therapy. Histopathological analysis was conducted on bilateral globes and revealed persistent preretinal vessels.
