Aggressive Posterior ROP (APROP)

Aggressive Posterior ROP or APROP is a severe form of retinopathy of prematurity which is characterized by fast progression to advances stages. The disease may bypass the early stages 1-3 and progress to stage 5 quickly. The junction is very deceptive and confuses unexperienced doctors easily.  Plus disease is characteristically out of proportion to the lack of severity of disease. It needs prompt treatment.
