A 37-year-old woman with bilateral obliterative retinal vasculitis and macular ischemia received intravitreal bevacizumab for rapidly progressive neovascularization of the optic disc and vitreous hemorrhage in the left eye. One week after treatment, she presented with central scotoma and fluorescein angiography revealed increased parafoveal capillary dropout and progressive macular ischemia in the treated eye.
