Bottom Line: A 15-year-old female presented with metamorphopsia in the left eye for 7 days.After 5 months of follow-up, involution of the hemangioma, reduction of macular edema, decrease of the feeder and draining vessel diameter, and improvement of best-corrected visual acuity to 20/25 was seen.This verteporfin photodynamic therapy combined with intravitreal triamcinolone acetonide appeared to cause involution of the hemangioma with reduction in macular edema and improvement in visual acuity.

ABSTRACT

Purpose: To report a case of retinal capillary hemangioma treated with verteporfin photodynamic therapy combined with intravitreal triamcinolone acetonide.

Methods: A 15-year-old female presented with metamorphopsia in the left eye for 7 days. Examination showed peripheral endophytic retinal capillary hemangioma, macular edema, and a best-corrected visual acuity of 20/50. The hemangioma and macular edema were treated with verteporfin photodynamic therapy and intravitreal triamcinolone acetonide.

Results: After 5 months of follow-up, involution of the hemangioma, reduction of macular edema, decrease of the feeder and draining vessel diameter, and improvement of best-corrected visual acuity to 20/25 was seen.

Conclusions: This verteporfin photodynamic therapy combined with intravitreal triamcinolone acetonide appeared to cause involution of the hemangioma with reduction in macular edema and improvement in visual acuity.

Figure 5: 3 months after PDT. (A) The macular hard exudate and edema improved. (B) The retinal capillary hemangioma regressed approximately 1.0 DD.

Mentions: Three months after PDT, BCVA had improved to 20/30 in the left eye and the retinal capillary hemangioma had regressed approximately 1.0 DD (Fig. 5B). The macular hard exudate and edema had improved (Fig. 5A).
