1/2. Photocoagulation of iris nevus to control recurrent hyphema.

    PURPOSE: To report a case of recurrent hyphema caused by an iris nevus that was successfully treated with photocoagulation. METHOD: Case report. In a 30-year-old woman with recurrent hyphema secondary to an iris nevus, photocoagulation was applied to the iris nevus. RESULTS: Before photocoagulation of the iris nevus, the patient had increasing frequency of hyphema episodes. After treatment, no hyphema episodes occurred during 13 months of observation. CONCLUSION: Photocoagulation of the surface of an iris nevus may prevent recurrent hyphema.

2/2. argon laser treatment of an abnormal angle vessel producing recurrent hyphema.

    Spontaneous hyphema has been linked to many conditions. We describe a patient with recurrent spontaneous hyphema caused by an abnormal angle vessel without associated rubeosis iridis, glaucoma, or other vascular abnormalities as documented by iris fluorescein angiography. After treatment with several sessions of argon laser photocoagulation, the patient has remained asymptomatic during ten months of follow-up.
