Angioid streaks are full thickness breaks in calcified and thickened Bruch's membrane.
Based on these findings, the application seeks approval of Visudyne therapy for diseases other than AMD characterized by CNV, even though the etiology of the formation of CNV is different for each disease, such as multifocal choroiditis, angioid streaks, certain retinal abnormalities, idiopathic or unknown causes, and many other rare conditions.
There are several other conditions that occur in relatively young patients, such as Ocular Histoplasmosis and Angioid Streaks, in which breaks in Bruch's membrane occur and are complicated by subfoveal choroidal neovascularization.
