Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The authors report a case of a female patient affected by neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD). In particular, multiple sub-retinal hyperreflective infiltrates were found on optical coherence tomography. Optical coherence tomography examination of her right eye displayed the presence of sub-retinal pigment epithelium hyporeflective spaces located beneath a hyperreflective fibrotic neovascularization. This case highlights the importance of differentiating choroidal clefts from choroidal caverns.
