A possible cause of CNV may be gleaned from the histopathologic observation of the deposition of basal laminar and basal linear deposit. The most common histopathologic correlate to soft drusen is the accumulation of membranous debris in basal linear deposit (56,57,63). Soft drusen are an ocular risk factor for the development of CNV in ARMD. There are several ways that deposited material may play a role in the development of CNV. It is possible that the presence of deposits, particularly lipids, affects the ability of growth factors produced by the RPE to diffuse through Bruch's membrane.
