Abstract

MUNOZ CARDONA, Marta Lucía; HERNANDEZ NAVARRO, Diana Lucía  and  VELASQUEZ OSSA, Luis Fernando. Intravitreal ranibizumab for peripapillary neovascular membrane associated to papiledema due to idiopathic intracranial hypertension: a case report. Iatreia [online]. 2014, vol.27, n.1, pp.85-89. ISSN 0121-0793.

Peripapillary neovascular membrane is a rare complication of chronic papiledema. When the latter is due to idiopathic intracranial hypertension, neovascularization is even rarer. Because of this low occurrence, it is difficult to design studies to define the most appropriate treatment. We report the case of a woman who developed papiledema by idiopathic intracranial hypertension with peripapillary neovascular membrane, and who was successfully treated with intravitreal ranibizumab.

Keywords : Intravitreal Injections; Papilledema; Pseudotumor Cerebri.
