PURPOSE: To assess the role of bevacizumab in inflammatory ocular neovascularization. DESIGN: Retrospective, multicenter, consecutive case series of inflammatory ocular neovascularization.

Main outcome measures included improvement of best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) expressed in logarithm of minimum angle of resolution units, response of inflammatory ocular neovascularization by funduscopy and angiography, and decrease in central foveal thickness as measured by optical coherence tomography at the three-month follow-up.
