Persistent Fetal Vasculature
A 6-week old patient presented with persistent fetal vasculature leading to a loss of red reflex due to a congenital cataract. UBM showed an anteriorly rotated ciliary body with a thickened retrolental membrane and a spherically shaped lens. Ultrasound showed a membrane from the optic disc with reduced axial length (14.78 mm vs 17.6 mm). Angiogram shows filling of the PFV prior to filling of the underlying retinal vessels. The patient was treated surgically with limbal lensectomy.
