Laser treatment in maculopathy of pseudoxanthoma elasticum.

PMID:  568024     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report a case of Pseudoxanthoma Elasticum with exudative retinopathy which was treated with the Argon laser and in which the visual acuity was preserved and the subretinal neovascular membrane obliterated for ten months. Laser treatment seems to have helped this case although the same treatment has stimulated the development of subretinal neovascular membranes. These cases must be treated cautiously.
