- Retinal angiomatous proliferation (RAP) is a unique variant of neovascular age-related macular degeneration. Published studies have estimated that up to 15% of patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration have RAP. Clinical features frequently associated with RAP include bilateral disease, presence of pigment epithelial detachments, and reticular pseudodrusen. RAP is more frequently associated with the development of retinal pigment epithelial tears and geographic atrophy that can lead to severe vision loss. We present a stereo fluorescein angiography and ICG (upper right and left image respectively) and OCT of left and right eye (middle and inferior image) of a RAP choroidal neovascularization in an 89-year-old patient.
