Abstract

Retinal capillary hemangioma (RCH) is a benign retinal tumor defined by a vascular proliferation localized in the peripheral retina, juxtapapillary retina, or the intraneural portion of the optic nerve. In most cases, diagnosis of RCH is performed by fundus evaluation and confirmed by fluorescein fundus angiography. Nevertheless, a small RCH localized on or adjacent to the optic nerve head could be difficult to detect by fundus examination. Here, the authors report an atypical case of RCH, not oph-thalmoscopically visible, but successfully detected first by optical coherence tomography (OCT) and then by OCT angiography, which confirmed its vascular nature.
