Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 47-year-old woman with a medical history of pseudoxanthoma elasticum and associated choroidal neovascularisation that was successfully managed with intravitreal bevacizumab injections developed non-squamous non-small cell lung carcinoma. The patient's oncological medication regimen included systemic bevacizumab. During the 22 months that the patient received systemic bevacizumab for management of her malignancy, intravitreal bevacizumab injections were held and the patient's visual acuity remained stable and the subretinal space was free of fluid leakage.
