Abstract

Purpose: To describe the clinical outcomes of intravitreal ranibizumab treatment for subfoveal choroidal neovascularization (CNV) associated with multiple evanescent white dot syndrome (MEWDS). Methods: This is a prospective, interventional, case series. All recruited patients underwent a baseline intravitreal ranibizumab injection and were monitored monthly over a 12-month follow-up, following a pro-re-nata regimen. Results: Four patients (four eyes) were included in the study. Mean best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) changed from 0.60 ± 0.20 at baseline to 0.07 ± 0.05 logMAR at 12-month examination. Baseline central macular thickness reduced from 330 ± 32 µm to the final value of 228 ± 14 µm at the 1-year follow-up. Overall, a mean number of 2.2 ranibizumab injections were administered at the end of 12 months. Conclusions: Intravitreal ranibizumab treatment represents a valuable therapeutic option for the management of CNV associated with MEWDS. © 2016, Taylor & Francis. All rights reserved.
