Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In a case of Malattia Leventinese, optical coherence tomography angiography led to the diagnosis of type 1 neovascularization, despite absence of evidence on conventional dye-based angiography. The authors hypothesize that, at least in some cases, accumulation of subretinal fluid in Malattia Leventinese could be due to a subretinal pigment epithelium (RPE) neovascular component rather than creation of hydrophobic barrier at the RPE and Bruch's membrane.
