Choroidal Hemangiomata


  • The mean age at presentation was 54.9 years (range: 19 to 88). The mean follow up after presentation was 42.8 months.[iovs.arvojournals.org]
  • Abstract Choroidal hemangioma is a rare congenital ocular tumor that can present as either circumscribed or diffuse.[journalofoptometry.org]
  • Presents a more streamlined format to the printed text to help you focus on the clinically actionable information you need everyday.[books.google.com]
  • This laser penetrates deeper, causing hyperthermia and occlusion of blood vessels with less damage to the surrounding retina. This leads to a decrease in subretinal fluid as well as a decrease in overall tumor size.[journalofoptometry.org]

Blurred Vision
  • A 70-year-old male presented with blurred vision of the left eye (OS). Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was 20/60 right eye and 20/160 OS. Biomicroscopy revealed bilateral cataracts.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Amblyopia (lazy eye) As the tumor blurs the vision, the brain gradually ignores the blurred vision from that eye and the eye drifts or crosses (strabismus).[sturge-weber.org]
  • A 52-year-old myopic male with a refraction of –8.00 D in both eyes (OU) noted blurred vision in his left eye (OS) for 4 years.[ojoonline.org]
  • You may have blurred vision, wavy or warped vision, or floaters, shadows, or sparks of light in your vision. How is a choroidal hemangioma diagnosed? A choroidal hemangioma is usually found during a routine eye exam.[drugs.com]
  • The most common symptom in patients with CCH is blurred vision secondary to macular edema. If complications do arise, there are several treatment options available.[journalofoptometry.org]
Visual Acuity Decreased
  • Most patients demonstrated recovery of vision (69%), some remained stable at their pre-treatment vision level (27.5%), and 1 patient had slight visual acuity decrease.[omicsonline.org]
Facial Hemihypertrophy
  • The clinical diagnostic criteria include ipsilateral neveus flammeus, seizures, hemiparesis, mental retardation, buphthalamos, ipsilateral bone and sinus hypertrophy, facial hemihypertrophy, and somatic hemiatrophy [3].[ijri.org]
Behavior Problem
  • Sturge-Weber syndrome, with its neural involvement, leads to seizures that can be intractable; it has been associated with developmental delay and behavioral problems.[retinalphysician.com]
Tonic-Clonic Seizure
  • An 11-year-old girl presented with two episodes of generalized tonic clonic seizures of 1-year duration, and gradual loss of right eye vision of 2-years' duration.[ijri.org]


  • When distant metastases are found during the initial systemic workup, treatment of the intraocular melanoma itself becomes palliative.[emedicine.medscape.com]
  • Diagnosis and Workup “Tomato catsup fundus” is a term often used to describe the red-orange choroid seen in patients with diffuse choroidal hemangiomas.[reviewofophthalmology.com]


  • It can also be used to evaluate the efficacy of treatment. 2,13 Treatment options CCH is often an asymptomatic lesion. In this case, close observation is the only treatment warranted.[journalofoptometry.org]

  • Treatment The decision to treat a CCH should be individualized. The physician should base treatment on the extent of symptoms, loss of vision, and the potential for visual recovery.[retinalphysician.com]
  • In general, these treatments exhibit high iatrogeny and are associated to a high rate of relapses.[kundoc.com]


  • Prognosis. Sturge-Weber syndrome, with its neural involvement, leads to seizures that can be intractable; it has been associated with developmental delay and behavioral problems.[retinalphysician.com]
  • Prognosis The prognosis for all forms of nevi tends to be good with iris nevi showing enlargement in less than 5% of cases (Territo et al., 1988).[atlasgeneticsoncology.org]
  • Melanomas with predominantly spindle cells have thin elongated cells and imply better prognosis. Epithelioid cell type melanoma has round cells and imply worse prognosis. There are two basic types of melanoma by genetics: high risk and low risk.[fighteyecancer.com]
  • Visual prognosis is good unless the hemangioma involves the macula.[eyewiki.aao.org]
  • Diffuse choroidal hemangiomas can be associated with systemic Sturge-Weber syndrome and have a poorer long-term visual prognosis due to coexistent amblyopia and glaucoma.[retinatoday.com]


  • Disease Medulloepithelioma Etiology Medulloepithelioma is a tumor that arises from the epithelium of the medullary tube, most often the ciliary body.[atlasgeneticsoncology.org]
  • Discussion Choroidal hemangioma is a benign vascular hamartoma that can be separated into two subtypes: circumscribed and diffuse. 1 The etiology of vision loss in choroidal hemangioma can be attributed to foveal distortion, subretinal fluid, intraretinal[reviewofophthalmology.com]
  • Diagnose a tumor which has etiological and pathogenic connection with a myasthenia. A 60-year-old man with a 90 pack year history of smoking experiences an episode of hemoptysis. A chest radiograph reveals a 5-cm right upper lobe lung mass.[doclecture.net]
