TIPSImportant Question from AIIMS 2013
Answer: A. Retinopathy of prematurity
Retinopathy of Prematurity
Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is a vasoproliferative retinopathy that affects premature and low-birth-weight infants. The retina is completely vascularized by 36–40 weeks of gestation.
All babies younger than 30 weeks gestational age, or a birth weight of 1500 g or less, and those that receive prolonged supplemental oxygen therapy should undergo repeated screening from 2–4 weeks after birth until the retina is fully vascularized, the retinal changes have undergone spontaneous resolution, or appropriate treatment has been given.
