Abstract: 

Purpose: To report a case of major β-Thalassemia with angioid streaks complicated by CNV.

Patient and finding: A 41-year-old woman presented with decreased visual acuity in the right eye 2 months following a mild head trauma. The patient was a known case of major β-thalassemia and clinical examination and F/A disclosed angioid streaks complicated by subfoveal CNV in her right eye.

Conclusion: β-thalassemia patients have been shown to present a high prevalence of angioid streaks, and ocular examination must be one of the major parts of the evaluation of these patients. Arterial calcifications are common in β-thalassemia patients and consequently vascular events complicating this anemia should be expected and evaluated by physicians.
