Choroidal (subretinal) neovascularization secondary to choroidal nevus and successful treatment with argon laser photocoagulation. Case reports and review of literature.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Retinal detachment secondary to choroidal nevus may be caused by subretinal fluid accumulation or neovascularization. Foveal subretinal fluid or leakage of choroidal neovascularization may impair visual acuity. 10 cases of nevus with serous sensory retinal detachment successfully treated with laser photocoagulation are reviewed. 2 additional cases of successful laser therapy for retinal detachment secondary to choroidal neovascularization with nevus of the choroid are presented.
