Photodynamic therapy (PDT) involves the induction of endothelial cell death or occlusion of blood vessels. On the basis of this mechanism of action, PDT is used in the treatment of predominant classic choroidal neovascularization (CNV), if the classic component is over 50%, and in myopic CNV. This study describes 2 cases of distinctive, abnormal, large, subretinal new vessels that are thought to have originated from the choroids. Diminishment of the new vessels was observed following treatment with PDT.
