Abstract

The authors describe the clinical and anatomical correlation between mean ocular perfusion pressure (MOPP) changes and macular exudation in a 62-year-old man affected by circumscribed choroidal hemangioma (CCH) and primary open-angle glaucoma. During the 5-year follow-up, we noted an increase of the subretinal fluid (SRF) and cystoid macular edema (CME) when the intraocular pressure (IOP) was in the low teens. Optical coherence tomography scans performed during an isometric exercise revealed a transient increase of the retinal (choroidal) thickness. In the presented case, MOPP appears to play a role in SRF and CME associated with CCH. Management of the macular exudation could improve if IOP and blood pressure are considered and treated accordingly.
