Abstract

Retinal venous occlusive events are a rare complication of arteriovenous malformations of the retina found in Wyburn-Mason syndrome. The authors present a case of a 28-year-old man diagnosed with Wyburn-Mason syndrome and cutaneous reactive angiomatosis, a reactive angioproliferative disorder induced by vascular occlusion. He developed a central retinal vein occlusion complicated by macular edema and received treatment with intravitreal bevacizumab, which led to resolution of the edema. To the best of the authors' knowledge, this is the first report of an anti-vascular endothelial growth factor agent employed as an effective treatment for macular edema in the setting of Wyburn-Mason syndrome. The association between Wyburn-Mason syndrome and cutaneous reactive angiomatosis is also a novel finding.
