    Abstract

    The occurrence of macular edema as an adverse effect of fingolimod is well documented. Treatment modalities used to manage fingolimod-associated macular edema (FAME) have included nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents and sub-tenon injection. We describe two cases where intravitreal injection is used to successfully treat FAME in patients who were previously unsuccessfully treated with topical nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories.
