Abstract A 46-year-old woman presented with a peripheral vasoproliferative tumor. The tumor was treated with one session of photodynamic therapy with 6 mg/m2 body surface area of verteporfin and a dose of 100 J/cm2 delivered in 83 seconds. At the 10-month follow-up examination, involution of the vasoproliferative tumor was seen with improvement of best-corrected visual acuity to 20/80. Photodynamic therapy is an effective treatment option in cases of exudative vasoproliferative tumors. Great variability exists in the parameters used to treat vasoproliferative tumors.
