The Histopathology of Familial Exudative Vitreoretinopathy: A Report of Two Cases

The Histopathology of Familial Exudative Vitreoretinopathy: A Report of Two Cases Abstract • Two eyes were enucleated for angle-closure associated with familial exudative vitreoretinopathy. Characteristic features included total retinal detachment, peripheral retinal vascular proliferation, and a fibrovascular preretinal membrane. Angle-closure glaucoma developed in one case when sudden massive subretinal hemorrhage, associated with abnormal intraretinal vessels, produced anterior displacement of the lens-iris diaphragm; in the second case, angle-closure was associated with the development of rubeosis iridis. Intraretinal inflammatory cells and exudates were also seen in the enucleated eyes. References 1. Criswick VG, Schepens CL: Familial exudative vitreoretinopathy . Am J Ophthalmol 1969; 68:578-594. 2.

Abstract

Abstract • Two eyes were enucleated for angle-closure associated with familial exudative vitreoretinopathy. Characteristic features included total retinal detachment, peripheral retinal vascular proliferation, and a fibrovascular preretinal membrane. Angle-closure glaucoma developed in one case when sudden massive subretinal hemorrhage, associated with abnormal intraretinal vessels, produced anterior displacement of the lens-iris diaphragm; in the second case, angle-closure was associated with the development of rubeosis iridis. Intraretinal inflammatory cells and exudates were also seen in the enucleated eyes. References 1. Criswick VG, Schepens CL: Familial exudative vitreoretinopathy . Am J Ophthalmol 1969; 68:578-594. 2.
