- Ultra-widefield fluorescein angiogram of a 24-year-old female with proliferative sickle cell retinopathy affecting her right eye. The physician's interpretation of the fluorescein shows seafan neovascularization superotemporally, AV anastomeses, and good peripheral laser. He performed scatter PRP OD on 12/2/2020 to nonperfusion in temporal far periphery. The patient's 12/2020 Hb electrophoresis came back showing Hb SC (rather than sickle cell trait). Patient was born at full term, but she reports that her mother used drugs while pregnant with the patient. The patient also mentioned that her niece has full sickle cell disease and her grandmother, mother, and sibling all have condition on the sickle cell spectrum.
