Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A patient who developed intravitreal ciliary body neovascularization following cyclocryotherapy for neovascular glaucoma is presented. Presenting vitreous hemorrhage limited her visual acuity to 20/200. After panretinal photocoagulation, the intravitreal ciliary body neovascularization regressed, the vitreous hemorrhage cleared, and the patient's visual acuity was 20/30. The possible pathogenesis of intravitreal ciliary body neovascularization is reviewed, and the reason for regression of the neovascular tissue is hypothesized.
