Polypoidal Choroidal Vasculopathy (PCV) is a condition characterized by chronic, multiple, recurrent serous and/or hemorrhagic detachments of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and neurosensory retina. Although it has been described to more often affect Asians and individuals of pigmented races, PCV may also be present in white patients who present with the clinical appearance of age related macular degeneration (AMD). PCV and its treatment are discussed, including the use of combination therapy.

Abstract

Polypoidal Choroidal Vasculopathy (PCV) is a condition characterized by chronic, multiple, recurrent serous and/or hemorrhagic detachments of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and neurosensory retina. Although it has been described to more often affect Asians and individuals of pigmented races, PCV may also be present in white patients who present with the clinical appearance of age related macular degeneration (AMD). PCV and its treatment are discussed, including the use of combination therapy.
