The authors describe a case of a previously unreported phenomenon of focal choroidal excavation (FCE) expansion, in absence of inflammation, due to treatment of an associated choroidal neovascular membrane (CNVM). A patient with new type 2 CNVM, treated during 43 months of follow-up with aflibercept, experienced significant expansion of an FCE with conversion from nonconforming to conforming type. FCE is part of the pachychoroid spectrum and the regression of an associated CNVM during aflibercept treatment as seen in the authors' patient may elucidate the pathogenesis of some forms of focal choroidal excavation and their evolution over time.

There is evidence from a variety of animal studies that choroidal blood flow is under neural control. Recent results in humans indicate that a light/dark transition is associated with a sh...
The purpose of study is to determine if Lucentis combined with imatinib mesylate will help treatment in patients with newly diagnosed choroidal neovascularization.
A pathological process consisting of the formation of new blood vessels in the CHOROID.
Excessive axial myopia associated with complications (especially posterior staphyloma and CHOROIDAL NEOVASCULARIZATION) that can lead to BLINDNESS.
Disorders of the choroid including hereditary choroidal diseases, neoplasms, and other abnormalities of the vascular layer of the uvea.
A form of RETINAL DEGENERATION in which abnormal CHOROIDAL NEOVASCULARIZATION occurs under the RETINA and MACULA LUTEA, causing bleeding and leaking of fluid. This leads to bulging and or lifting of the macula and the distortion or destruction of central vision.
Treatment modality for DENTAL CARIES that uses manual excavation method and GLASS IONOMER CEMENTS. Because of its noninvasiveness and no need for expensive equipment and anesthesia it is promoted as an approach in places where dental care is not readily available.
