Abstract

Purpose:

To report a case of exudative retinal detachment caused by a choroidal neovascular membrane in Hallermann–Streiff syndrome.

Methods:

The authors report a 7-year-old white male with Hallermann–Streiff syndrome who developed exudative retinal detachments secondary to choroidal neovascular membrane that resolved after off-label use of intravitreal injections of bevacizumab 1.25 mg.

Conclusion:

Patients with Hallermann–Streiff syndrome and exudative retinal detachment present with choroidal neovascular membrane can respond well with intravitreal injections of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor.
