Subfoveal neovascularization in the ocular histoplasmosis syndrome. A natural history study






Retina 8(4): 225-229

Subfoveal neovascularization in the ocular histoplasmosis syndrome. A natural history study

The visual outcome of 74 eyes with the ocular histoplasmosis syndrome and active subfoveal subretinal neovascular membranes was studied retrospectively. Follow-up time ranged from 12 to 109 months (median, 36.5 months). Ten eyes (14%) retained visual acuity of 20/40 or better. Fifty-seven eyes (77%) suffered visual loss of 20/100 or worse and 36 eyes (49%) suffered visual loss of 20/400 or worse.
