The aim of this article was to report a case with ischemic macular edema (ME) due to an acute branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) which was treated with repeated intravitreal anti-VEGF injections. Methods: Retrospective case presentation. A 66-year-old female patient was treated with repeated intravitreal anti-VEGF injections due to ischemic ME following an acute BRVO. Over a period of 2.5 years best corrected visual acuity increased from 0.06 to 0.6 (decimal notation) accompanied by a reduction in central retinal thickness from 546 to 292 µm. Overall 17 anti-VEGF injections were administered to treat repeated recurrence of ME. Macular ischemia did not worsen during this profound intravitreal anti-VEGF therapy.
