PMID:  9148257     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A 14-year-old boy with bilateral retinal arteritis with multiple aneurysmal dilatations complicated by secondary macular subretinal fibrovascular proliferation and epimacular membrane formation is described. This complication has not been previously reported in this rare disorder. Systemic steroid and immunosuppressive therapy did not change the course of the disease. Improvement of macular edema and subretinal exudation was achieved following pars plana vitrectomy, posterior hyaloid dissection and epiretinal membrane removal.
