Abstract

We describe a case of iris vascular tufts which came to our attention because of a hyphacma. Laser treatment was carried out for the vascular anomalies. After a period of 3 months, fresh vascular anomalies had appeared in different locations. Further treatment led to permanent obliteration. We emphasize the importance of fluoro-iridography in the monitoring of vascular anomalies as it allows accurate targeting treatment.
