Abstract

Purpose:

To describe an unusual case of polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy secondary to morning glory syndrome successfully treated with three aflibercept intravitreal injections.

Methods:

Case report.

Results:

A 68-year-old white man presented with a 2-month history of diminished vision of his left eye. Fundus examination showed a morning glory syndrome disk anomaly with some perimacular subretinal hemorrhages and lipid depositions. Fundus autofluorescence, fluorescein and green indocyanine angiography, spectral domain optical coherence tomography, and optical coherence tomography angiography were performed and confirmed the presence of a juxtapapillary polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy with intraretinal and subretinal fluid. Patient underwent 3 monthly intravitreal injections of aflibercept and at 4-month follow-up visit, multimodal imaging findings did not show any kind of neovascular lesion activity.

Conclusion:

Polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy can occur in morning glory syndrome and it can be successfully treated with anti–vascular endothelial growth factor intravitreal injections of aflibercept.
