1/1. optic disk neovascularization in hemoglobin sc disease.A 37-year-old black man had a clinically documented case of optic disk neovascularization associated with hemoglobin sc disease. Through medical evaluation, we ruled out other disorders associated with proliferative retinopathy. Extensive areas of retinal nonperfusion were associated with vasoproliferative retinopathy at the junction of the perfused and nonperfused retina; and a delicate network of neovascularization extended from the optic disk into the vitreous gel in one eye.
