Summary
Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), previously known as retrolental fibroplasia (RLF), is a retinal vasoproliferative disorder affecting premature infants. When severe, ROP can cause retinal detachment and severe visual impairment. It is second only to cortical visual impairment as the leading cause of blindness in children in the United States. Worldwide, its incidence is increasing in developing countries that have improving survival rates for infants of extremely low gestational age. Strategies to diagnose, treat, and prevent ROP are rapidly evolving and are the focus of this module
