Abstract :

Aim: The aim is to report the treatment algorithm employed in a patient diagnosed with frosted branch angiitis. Methods: Medical records of a patient who presented with FBA were reviewed. Empirical initial treatment consisted of prednisolone (1 mg/Kg/day) for 2 weeks and subsequently taped. Intravitreal anti-VEGF injection plus argon laser photocoagulation were performed due an inferior vein occlusion and macular oedema occurred two and half months follow up. Results: The initial best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was 20/400 and 20/20 at the last follow up (14 months). FBA and its consequence were controlled. Conclusions: FBA is an uncommon entity and late extensive retinal ischemia with macula oedema is rarely described. Based on our findings, long-term follow-up examinations are needed to prevent complications in these cases. Ancillary tests, e.g. Fluorescence Angiography can be useful.
