• Neovascular fundus abnormalities are an unusual complication of peripheral uveitis. Peripheral retinal neovascularization was seen in 11 patients, six of whom had retinal angioma-like lesions. Most of the patients had loss of vision caused by vitreous hemorrhage. In four additional patients with peripheral uveitis, neovascularization developed either at the disc or elsewhere in the posterior pole.
