Abstract

PURPOSE. Parafoveal telangiectasis (PT) is a developmental or acquired microvascular abnormality of the macula. Leakage of the abnormal parafoveal capillaries leads to macular edema with subsequent decrease in visual acuity. Intravitreal triamcinolone acetonide is recently widely used in the management of intraocular proliferative, edematous, and neovascular diseases.
