Purpose: To report a patient with CHARGE association (coloboma, heart disease, choanal atresia, growth retardation, genital hypoplasia, and ear abnormalities) who developed a choroidal neovascular membrane in association with an optic nerve coloboma.
Design: Interventional/observational case report.
Method: A 21-month-old boy with CHARGE association developed a grayish choroidal neovascular membrane associated with lipid exudation, subretinal fluid, and retinal hemorrhage at the temporal edge of his right optic nerve coloboma.
Results: The patient underwent transpupillary diode laser of the choroidal neovascular membrane. Five months later, it and the serous retinal detachment had resolved.
Conclusions: Patients with CHARGE association may develop choroidal neovascular membrane with serous retinal detachments in association with optic nerve colobomas. These neovascular membranes may be treated successfully with transpupillary diode laser.
