PMID:  2432636     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Subretinal neovascularization associated with retinochoroidal coloboma is a rare finding. Only two other cases have been reported in the literature, neither of which were treated with photocoagulation. Here, the author reports a case of subretinal neovascular net associated with a retinochoroidal coloboma, which was treated with laser photocoagulation. The patient's vision improved from 20/200 to 20/30-1 following two argon green laser treatments, with a 33-month follow-up since the initial treatment.
