MORENO-LOPEZ, M. y REGUERAS, A.. Intravitreal bevacizumab followed by focal laser for diffuse diabetic macular edema of recent progression: A clinical case. Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol [online]. 2009, vol.84, n.4, pp.209-212. ISSN 0365-6691.
Case report: We report the case of a 48-year-old man with diffuse diabetic macular edema of recent progression treated with two consecutive intravitreal injections of bevacizumab followed by focal laser therapy, with good anatomic and functional response. Discussion: Diffuse diabetic macular edema is difficult to manage and frequently requires multiple therapies. We propose the use of bevacizumab as a strategy to reduce diffuse macular edema, facilitating the application of laser therapy.
