Abstract
The authors describe a patient who underwent successful photodynamic therapy with verteporfin for juxtafoveal choroidal neovascularization complicated by serpiginous choroiditis. A 41-year-old woman presented with decreased vision and metamorphopsia in her right eye, which was diagnosed as a recurrence of serpiginous choroiditis at the first visit. Within a month, visual acuity had diminished to 20/1000 despite immunosuppressive treatment. At that time, indocyanine green angiography and optical coherence tomography revealed choroidal neovascularization in the juxtafoveal area. Photodynamic therapy with verteporfin was administered twice, after which juxtafoveal choroidal neovascularization regressed and her visual acuity improved to 20/20.
