Cryotherapy for retinopathy of incontinentia pigmenti

  • 1Department of Ophthalmology, College of Medicine, Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea.


A case with typical skin lesions of incontinentia pigmeti showed progressing retinal vascular abnormalities. So cryotherapy was done on avascular peripheral retina, and retinal vascular changes ceased. We propose that cryotherapy may be a good treatment method for progressing retinal vascular lesions of incontinentia pigmenti.
