Clinical case: A patient had bilateral angioid streaks complicated by cicatricial degeneration in the left eye and subfoveal choroidal neovascularization in the right eye. Photodynamic therapy resulted in a favorable response with normalization of the visual acuity and angiographic resolution of the lesions. Discussion: The most serious complication of angioid streaks is choroidal neovascularization. Today photodynamic therapy is an effective treatment of subfoveal choroidal neovascularization. It also appears useful in the treatment of choroidal neovascularization in angioid streaks.
