Aggressive posterior retinopathy of prematurity (AP-ROP) is the most severe form ofretinopathy of prematurity (RP), characterized by early onset, fulminant course with absence of stagingand resistance to treatment. Today, the increase in AP-ROPincidence is associated with the changing standards for nursingof severely premature infants and wideprevalence of assisted reproductive technology — in vitro fertilization (IVF). The article presents a clinical case of aggressiveposterior retinopathy of prematurity in a girl with agestational ageof 25 weeks and a birth weightof about 860 grams who was conceived by IVF. Medical and high-tech laser treatment, fullycarried out in time, has lead toregression of this disease, which mayallowto preserve and develop visual function.
