ZACHARIAS, Leandro Cabral; RODRIGUES NETO, Taurino dos Santos; SILVA NETO, Epitácio Dias da  e  ANTUNES, Fernando Henrique Cardoso. Coats disease associated with vasoproliferative tumor treated with cryotherapy and intravitreal injections of triamcinolone. Rev. bras.oftalmol. [online]. 2018, vol.77, n.5, pp.282-285. ISSN 0034-7280.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5935/0034-7280.20180061.

Report of a case of Coats disease associated with retinal vasoproliferative tumor in a young female patient with two peripheral vascularized tumors and lipid exudation involving the macula and peripapillary region with serous retinal detachment areas and pre-papillary fibrous proliferation. The proposed and performed treatment was the intravitreal injection of triamcinolone acetonide to decrease the tumor exudation, followed by photocoagulation of the peripheral areas of telangiectasia without subretinal fluid and cryotherapy of the tumors. Despite that this is a rare and difficult to treat combination, in this case report, success was obtained in receding the tumor masses and reapplying the retina, leading to anatomic and visual stabilization.
