Persistent Hyperplastic Primary Vitreous

Persistent fetal vasculature can be a devastating developmental anomaly that remains an important cause of amblyopia and visual disabilities in children. While PFV does not progress during a child’s lifetime, eye growth can result in tractional intraocular changes past infancy and affected children may go on to develop complications including glaucoma, cataracts, intraocular hemorrhages, retinal detachments, and/or phthisis that will further affect the child’s vision/cosmesis of the eye.
