Abstract
Purpose

To describe the anatomical and functional results of intravitreal antiangiogenic treatment in optic nerve head drusen associated with choroidal neovascularisation.

Case report

An 8-year-old male patient with a diagnosis of neovascular membrane in the right eye associated with bilateral optic nerve head drusen. Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was by counting fingers in the right eye and improved to 0.4 after antiangiogenic treatment. A complete consolidation of the lesion was observed with no associated complications arising from the treatment.

Discussion/Conclusions

Antiangiogenic treatment is an effective option, and no side-effects have been observed in treatment of neovascular tissue associated with optic disc drusen in children.

Resumen
Objetivo

Describir los resultados anatómicos y funcionales obtenidos en un caso de neovascularización coroidea asociada a drusas papilares tras tratamiento antiangiogénico intravítreo.

Caso clínico

La agudeza visual al comienzo fue de cuenta dedos, mejorando hasta 0,4 tras tratamiento antiangiogénico. Se obtuvo una consolidación completa de la lesión sin complicaciones asociadas derivadas del tratamiento.

Discusión/Conclusiones

El empleo de terapia antiangiogénica ha resultado efectivo y no se han evidenciado efectos secundarios en el tratamiento de membrana neovascular asociada a drusas en edad pediátrica.
