Spontaneous regression of retinal lesions in Coats' disease.


Coats' disease is characterized by vascular anomalies in the retina that are usually associated with exudates. In the absence of treatment the disease almost always progresses toward loss of vision and, often, loss of the eye. This report describes three patients in whom some of the retinal lesions apparently regressed spontaneously; only two other such patients are mentioned in the literature. These patients may have had a form of Coats' disease that has a better prognosis than usual for the eye.
