Treatment
After the diagnosis of melanoma-associated retinopathy was made, our patient was treated with intravenous immunoglobulin (2 mg/kg) for 6 months, resulting in her having a stable visual acuity (20/30 ± 2 in each eye). Of note, an improvement in her night vision was observed subjectively; however, repeat ffERG findings were unchanged.
