112. Radiation Retinopathy
In this image, there is evidence of intraretinal edema (IRF) and microaneurysm (MA) and exudation which has deposited in the deep retina (left of the image). On the right of the image, the retina is within normal limits. The patient did not have a history of diabetes, but had radiation for a melanoma (delivered as a plaque).
The patient was diagnosed with radiation retinopathy.
In a patient with intraretinal fluid and microaneurysms on OCT, without a history of diabetes, make sure to ask about previous radiation.
