Mrittika Sen, Santosh G HonavarIndian Journal of Ophthalmology 2019 67(12):1965-1973 Circumscribed choroidal hemangioma is a benign vascular tumor which presents in middle-aged adults with progressive diminution of vision, metamorphopsia, floaters, and visual field defects. Diagnosis is based on the characteristic clinical features. It is an orange-red, usually solitary, tumor situated in the posterior pole. The visual symptoms are because of the associated subretinal fluid, cystoid macular edema, and, in long-standing cases, retinal pigment epithelium changes, subretinal fibrosis and retinoschisis. It must be distinguish...

We report a case where magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was used to aid in radiation target delineation for radioactive eye plaque brachytherapy. A thin-slice orbital MRI enhanced with gadolinium contrast was performed to differentiate the enhanced tumor from the unenhanced subretinal fluid, allowing for hemangioma delineation. Our patient was treated with 35Gy to the tumor apex over four days via radioactive iodine eye plaque. Subretinal fluid in the macula improved within a month and the exudative retinal detachment resolved within six months. There was no recurrence of subretinal fluid at three years. Our case illustrat...

Diffuse choroidal hemangioma is a rare, benign vascular eye tumor that typically presents as part of Sturge-Weber syndrome. The tumor is clinically ill-defined with indistinct margins and blends subtly with the choroid. Associated exudative retinal detachment is a common complication that is reversible with management. External beam radiation therapy has traditionally been used for the treatment of diffuse choroidal hemangioma. There have been limited reports on the use of radioactive eye plaque brachytherapy.

Authors: Karimi S, Nourinia R, Mashayekhi A Abstract Circumscribed choroidal hemangiomas are benign vascular hamartomas without systemic associations. Generally, they are orange-red elevated masses, which are found posterior to the equator. Lesions are usually solitary and unilateral. Overlying subretinal fluid, serous retinal detachment and cystoid macular edema are common findings. Intravenous fluorescein angiography, indocyanine green angiography, ultrasonography, optical coherence tomography and enhanced depth imaging are helpful ancillary tests for diagnosis of circumscribed choroidal hemangiomas. Asymptomatic...
