Adenoma of the retinal pigment epithelium simulating a juxtapapillary choroidal neovascular membrane



Adenoma of the retinal pigment epithelium simulating a juxtapapillary choroidal neovascular membrane



Archives of Ophthalmology 119(2): 289-292



We report a case of an adenoma of the retinal pigment epithelium that clinically simulated a juxtapapillary choroidal neovascular membrane in a 60-year-old man. Fluorescein angiography supported the diagnosis of a juxtapapillary choroidal neovascular membrane in his left eye. After 13 years the lesion become slightly pigmented and the optic disc became swollen. The possibility of choroidal melanoma with optic disc invasion was considered, and the eye was enucleated. The lesion proved histopathologically to be an adenoma of the retinal pigment epithelium.
