Optic nerve neovascularization in incontinentia pigmenti

Optic nerve neovascularization in incontinentia pigmenti

American Journal Of Ophthalmology. 124(3): 410-412

PURPOSE: To describe the presence of optic disk neovascularization in a child with incontinentia pigmenti. METHODS: A 6-month-old infant with incontinentia pigmenti developed optic disk neovascularization in addition to vascular abnormalities in the peripheral retina. Panretinal photocoagulation was performed. RESULT: The optic disk neovascularization regressed after panretinal photocoagulation. CONCLUSIONS: Optic disk neovascularization is another notable retinal manifestation of incontinentia pigmenti. When optic disk neovascularization is detected, retinal ablation should be considered as treatment.
