Combined hamartoma of the retina and retinal pigment epithelium



Combined hamartoma of the retina and retinal pigment epithelium



Optometry and Vision Science 70(10): 860-862



Combined hamartoma of the retina and retinal pigment epithelium is a rare, congenital fundus lesion which typically presents with a history of reduced acuity and/or the onset of strabismus. Clinically, the lesion is elevated, with a variably pigmented outer portion and a lighter central core of dilated tortuous vessels and gliosis. This benign lesion may be confused with more threatening conditions such as malignant melanoma or retinoblastoma. An appropriate diagnosis through clinical appearance and fluorescein angiography is imperative to prevent unnecessary enucleation. The authors report one case of combined hamartoma of the retina and retinal pigment epithelium in a patient presenting with a complaint of decreased vision.
