Abstract

Choroidal neovascularization is now considered to be a most important feature in the pathogenesis and treatment of a number of chorioretinal disorders. Since the recognition of its importance, choroidal neovascularization has been described in clinical and pathologic studies of a variety of different ophthalmologic conditions. We have summarized the diseases in which choroidal neovascularization occurs and have reviewed studies on the natural history, clinical findings, and therapy of choroidal neovascularization that provide the basis for the current management of this condition.
