Background: A case of rubella retinopathy associated with subfoveal choroidal neovascularisation (CNV) is presented.
Case Report: A 9-year-old girl with subfoveal choroidal neovascularisation in left eye secondary to rubella retinopathy was treated with photodynamic therapy (PDT) usin verteporfi n. The patient was hearing-impaired. Patient was followed up with fundus examinations, fundus fl uorescein angiography (FFA), and best-corrected visual acuity. Three treatments of photodynamic therapy using verteporfi n and one dose triamcinolone acetonide intavitreal injection were applied. Owing to recurrence of active choroidal neovascularisation the patient required three treatments of photodynamic therapy in the next 1 year. Although there was a decrease in the size of lesion as a result of photodynamic therapy, recurrence developed after each treatment, and fi nally, disciform scarring occurred with fi brosis.
Conclusions: Subfoveal choroidal neovascularisation may develop secondary to rubella retinopathy. Photodynamic therapy may be an effective treatment for subfoveal choroidal neovascularisation secondary to rubella retinopathy in early stage cases.
