Update on Treatments for Retinal Bleeding Caused by Pseudoxanthoma Elasticum
The retinal bleeding caused by pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE) is the result of choroidal neovascularization (CNV) which can leak blood and cause scarring in the eye, leading to vision loss.  Two anti-VEGF drugs, Lucentis and Avastin, have shown the most improvement in the majority of individuals treated for CNV.
