Subfoveal and juxtafoveal subretinal neovascularization in the presumed ocular histoplasmosis syndrome. Visual prognosis.

Abstract

The visual prognosis of 148 eyes in patients with an active subfoveal or juxtafoveal subretinal neovascular membrane (SRNVM) in the presumed ocular histoplasmosis syndrome (POHS) was reviewed. Average follow-up was 39 months. One hundred twenty of 148 eyes (81.1%) had a final visual acuity worse than 20/40. One hundred three of 148 eyes (69.6%) had a final visual acuity equal to or worse than 20/200. Systemic and/or periocular steroids had no effect on final visual outcome. Factors affecting final visual outcome are described and prognosis in the fellow eye is discussed.
