Abstract

Circumscribed choroidal hemangioma (CH) is an uncommon benign vascular tumor that often causes visual impairment in the affected eye. CH is easily detected by biomicroscopic examination, fluorescein angiography and echography. Sometimes the diagnosis may be difficult. The authors evaluated nine patients, three males and six females, using also the indocyanine green angiography. This procedure demonstrated a characteristic aspect of the tumor. In the choroidal phases, CH showed a hyperfluorescence which slowly decreased after 15 minutes. The tumors appeared empty after about 30 minutes from the injection. In conclusion, ICG angiography appears more reliable than fluorescein angiography to identify circumscribed choroidal hemangioma.
