Özet

Herein, we describe a neovascular age-related macular degeneration patient with retinal angiomatous proliferation (RAP) and polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) coexisting in the same eye at the time of diagnosis. A 55-year-old woman presented with a history of decreased vision in her left eye. Fundoscopy, fluorescein and indocyanine green angiography, and optical coherence tomography imaging revealed RAP and PCV lesions in her left eye at first diagnosis. The patient received intravitreal ranibizumab therapy but developed tachyphylaxis after the first dose despite having three monthly doses. Switching to intravitreal aflibercept injection in our case resulted in anatomic and functional improvement.
