Abstract

A second anterior ridge formed 8 weeks after therapy in a case of zone II, stage 3 retinopathy of prematurity, which was treated with intravitreal bevacizumab injection alone. The clinical appearance was defined as "double ridge." Retinopathy of prematurity cases treated only with intravitreal bevacizumab injections may progress; therefore, close follow-up is recommended.
