Abstract

Purpose

To report a case of polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) that was successfully treated by sub-Tenon’s infusion of triamcinolone acetonide (TA).

Methods

A 56-year-old Japanese man had PCV in his left eye with vision of 20/32. Fluorescein angiography demonstrated a hyperfluorescent spot, and indocyanine green angiography showed marked leakage of dye from the polypoidal vessel. Optical coherence tomography showed anterior protrusion of highly reflective layers and subretinal fluid.

Results

The patient underwent trans-Tenon’s retrobulbar infusion of 12 mg TA. Subsequently, the reddish-orange lesion decreased in size and elevation with complete resolution of the serous retinal detachment, and visual acuity improved to 20/20. Visual acuity remained good through a 15-month follow-up during which the patient was free of endophthalmitis and elevated intraocular pressure.

Conclusions

Trans-Tenon’s retrobulbar TA infusion is potentially effective in treating PCV.
