BAGET-BERNALDIZ, M.; SOLER LLUIS, N.; ROMERO-AROCA, P.  and  TRAVESET-MAESO, A.. Optical coherence tomography study in tamoxifen maculopathy. Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol [online]. 2008, vol.83, n.10, pp.615-617. ISSN 0365-6691.

Case report: We describe the case of a patient who presented with progressive and bilateral loss of vision. She had been treated with tamoxifen for 13 years. We performed fluorescein angiography and optical coherence tomography in order to study the macula. Discussion: Loss of visual acuity related to tamoxifen maculopathy may be caused either by retinal nerve fibre atrophy or macular oedema. Macular findings obtained by fluorescein angiography and optical coherence tomography are complementary.

Keywords : Tamoxifen maculopathy; fluorescein angiography; optical coherence tomography.
