Abstract The results of a patient with exudative age-related macular degeneration who received an intravitreal injection of ziv-aflibercept (Zaltrap; Sanofi-Aventis, Paris, France) in the right eye are described. A complete ocular examination as well as color fundus photography, optical coherence tomography, fluorescein angiography, microperimetry, full-field electroretinography, and multifocal electroretinography were performed and repeated 1 month later. the patient experienced subjective and objective improvement of visual acuity with a decrease in intraretinal and subretinal fluid. Microperimetric improvement also occurred. Electroretinographic changes were noted from baseline to the 30-day follow-up. No adverse events were observed at any time point. Ziv-aflibercept demonstrated short-term safety and efficacy after intravitreal administration for neovascular macular degeneration.
