Choroidal hemangioma is an uncommon benign vascular tumor of the choroid. Clinically, two forms of choroidal hemangioma were recognized: circumscribed and diffuse. Diffuse choroidal hemangioma is usually part of neuro-oculo-cutaneous hemangiomatosis (Sturge-Weber syndrome) .s are benign vascular hamartomatous tumors of the choroid. They present in two forms based on the extent of choroidal involvement: circumscribed choroidal hemangioma ( CCH ): solitary tumor with no systemic associations. diffuse choroidal hemangioma ( DCH ): usually in association with Sturge-Weber. A choroidal hemangioma is a benign tumor in your choroid. Your choroid is located between the white of your eye and your retina. The choroid contains the blood vessels of your eye. A choroidal hemangioma usually occurs in only one eye
Choroidal hemangiomas are benign vascular hamartomas that can be diffuse (as seen in the case of Sturge-Weber syndrome) or circumscribed as shown here. They typically are red-orange in color with indistinct margins and are located in the posterior pole. There may be overlying retinal pigmented epithelium (RPE) changes or orange pigment Choroidal hemangioma with a large number of thin-walled, variably sized vessels within the choroid. A, Low-magnification view shows exudative retinal detachment overlying the lesion (asterisk).Arrows designate Bruch membrane.B, Higher-magnification photomicrograph from a different patient showing the numerous choroidal blood vessels; arrows designate Bruch membrane CIRCUMSCRIBED CHOROIDAL HEMANGIOMA Circumscribed choroidal hemangiomas (CCHs) are benign tumors that occur sporadically, without any associated local or systemic anomalies. CCH usually appears between the second and sixth decade of life, causing visual disturbances due to exudative retinal detachment or macular edema. 3-
Choroidal hemangioma is a benign hamartomatous disorder (3A) that occurs in two distinct clinical forms: a circumscribed form that is almost always isolated and nonsyndromic, and diagnosed between the second and fourth decade of life; and a diffuse form that is usually part of the Sturge-Weber syndrome of encephalo-facial hemangiomatosis Choroidal hemangioma is a benign vascular tumor of the choroid and manifests in two subtypes: circumscribed and diffuse. The diffuse choroidal hemangioma occurs frequently in association with Sturge-Weber syndrome and the circumscribed hemangioma has no systemic associations Choroidal hemangioma is a benign vascular tumor of the posterior segment that can manifest as a small circumscribed tumor or an extensive diffuse tumor. 1 Circumscribed choroidal hemangioma is sporadic, unilateral, and commonly overlooked on funduscopic examination because the tumor color blends nearly imperceptibly with the normal choroid. 2 Diffuse choroidal hemangioma appears as an ill-defined orange-colored mass, deep to the retina, often with overlying subretinal fluid (SRF) Choroidal hemangiomas are hamartomas, benign vascular tumors which are composed of tissue elements normally found in a given location Choroidal hemangioma are vascular hamartomas that are present in two distinct forms: a discrete or circumscribed form, and a diffuse form. The diffuse form is typically associated with Sturge-Weber syndrome and discrete lesions are more common in non-syndromic cases
Choroidal hemangioma is an uncommon vascular tumor of the choroid, which can be either circumscribed, generally presenting without systemic associations, or diffuse, often associated with Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS). In some cases, localized prominence within a diffuse hemangioma may resemble a circumscribed hemangioma. 1 choroidal hemangioma, ultra-wide field imaging, fluorescein angiogram (FA), Optos, left eye, early phase Photographer Stacie Neview, COA, OSC Imaging device Fundus camera Optos California Description Ultra wide field fluorescein angiogram of a 44-year-old male with presumed central serous retinopathy Aims To characterise the clinical and topographical features of circumscribed choroidal haemangioma (CCH) and to visualise the patterns of tumour extent in the ocular fundus. Methods Data on the size, shape and location of 113 CCH were converted into a database of two-dimensional retinal charts by means of computer drawing software. The extent of the tumours was visualised by merging the.
Choroidal haemangioma is an uncommon benign vascular tumour of the choroid that can be either circumscribed or diffuse. 1 Diffuse choroidal haemangioma is usually part of neuro-oculo-cutaneous. RESULTS: On EDI-OCT, choroidal hemangioma showed low internal reflectivity in 47% of lesions and high internal reflectivity in 53%. The most common associated features were normal-looking honeycomb-like pattern in choriocapillaris in all lesions, inner segment/outer segment abnormality in 62%, photoreceptor outer segment abnormality in 62%, subretinal fluid with speckles in 62%, and shaggy. Introduction. Circumscribed choroidal hemangioma (CCH) is a relatively rare vascular hamartoma that typically presents in the posterior pole. Although it is a benign tumour, visual acuity can drop as a consequence of a hyperopic shift caused by increasing tumour size within the macula or by leakage, leading to serous retinal detachment and less often intraretinal macular oedema
Changes in retinal fluid patterns associated with circumscribed choroidal hemangioma (CCH) have not been investigated yet. A long-term follow-up study was performed to evaluate the changes of retinal fluid patterns and treatment responses. We retrospectively reviewed medical records of all CCH patients diagnosed between November 2005 and March 2017 Choroidal osteoma is a benign ossifying tumor characterized by mature bone replacing choroid. The condition is reported rarely, with only 61 patients seen at a major tertiary center in 26 years However, asymptomatic patients with choroidal osteoma are typically not referred to a tertiary center, but rather are followed in community-based practice; one study reports 11 patients seen in a.

The classic description of a choroidal melanoma is a pigmented collar button-shaped tumor often associated with a serous retinal detachment; however, melanomas can vary from amelanotic to dark brown and from fusiform to collar-button
Photodynamic therapy and PBT provide similar anatomical and functional outcomes for circumscribed choroidal hemangioma ≤3 mm, although multiple sessions are sometimes required for PDT. For tumors >3 mm, PBT seems preferable because it can treat the tumor in only 1 session with better functional and anatomical outcomes T1 - Photodynamic therapy of choroidal hemangioma in sturge-weber syndrome, with a review of treatments for diffuse and circumscribed choroidal hemangiomas.

In SWS, choroidal hemangiomas are usually diffuse, unilateral, and ipsilateral to the angiomatous malformation of the skin
Choroidal hemangioma. Verteporfin is available as Visudyne (Alcami Carolinas Corporation). Verteporfin is a light-activated drug used in photodynamic therapy (PDT). Once verteporfin is activated by light in the presence of oxygen, highly reactive, short-lived reactive oxygen radicals are generated Several tumors, including uveal melanoma, show somatic mutations of GNAQ/GNA11. Circumscribed choroidal hemangioma is a benign tumor that becomes symptomatic in adulthood. In some patients, morphologic examination of biopsies is required for differential diagnosis between amelanotic choroidal melanoma and circumscribed choroidal hemangioma Clinically, choroidal hemangioma has a red-orange color, appears as a smooth, dense mass on ultrasonography, and can manifest occasional subretinal fluid, similar to the dome-shaped macula. Fluorescein angiography of hemangioma shows diffuse hyperfluorescence with leakage whereas dome-shaped macula would remain without fluorescence or with. To evaluate the efficacy of photodynamic therapy using a double dose of verteporfin for patients with circumscribed choroidal hemangioma. This retrospective comparative case series evaluated data from 10 patients who were treated using double dose photodynamic therapy (12 mg/m) and seven patients who were treated using the standard dose (6 mg/m) Ultrasonography of Choroidal hemangioma. It is solid dome shaped mass of choroid with high amplitude (and thickening of the choroid) but no angle kappa (sound attenuation) unlike choroidal melanoma. The lesions are usually mildly elevated (height is less than width), unlike the melanoma which may have height more than width
Melanomas (choroidal, ciliary body and uveal) - In the early stages there may be no symptoms (the person does not know there is a tumor until an ophthalmologist or optometrist looks into the eye with an ophthalmoscope during a routine test). As the tumor grows, symptoms can be blurred vision, decreased vision, double vision, eventual vision loss and if they continue to grow the tumor can break. Multifocal photodynamic therapy for diffuse choroidal hemangioma Marcus Ang, Shu-Yen LeeSingapore Eye Research Institute, Singapore National Eye Centre, SingaporeBackground: A choroidal hemangioma is an uncommon benign vascular tumor of the choroid that can be either circumscribed or diffuse. In our experience, diffuse choroidal hemangiomas in Asian patients often require multiple photodynamic. . It is nevertheless an infrequently found tumor. Choroidal melanoma is a subtype of uveal melanoma. Uveal melanomas can be divided into 2 categories: (1) anterior uveal melanomas, in which the tumor. OBJECTIVE To describe the clinical findings in 3 eyes with circumscribed choroidal hemangioma before and after treatment with photodynamic therapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS In the setting of a tertiary referral center, 2 patients with circumscribed, posteriorly located, choroidal hemangiomas (thicknesses 2.4 and 2.9 mm) contiguous with the superior boundary of the optic nerve and accompanied by. Background. Choroidal hemangioma is a benign, relatively rare vascular hamartoma that can present as a solitary, isolated lesion: circumscribed choroidal hemangioma (CCH), and less frequently, as an extensive lesion associated with Sturge-Weber syndrome: diffuse choroidal hemangioma 1,2.Typically, CCH is seen as a discrete, smooth, round or oval, orange-red mass in the posterior pole with.
Purpose. To report visual acuity (VA) outcomes in eyes undergoing photodynamic therapy (PDT), with or without concurrent intravitreal Triamcinolone acetonide (IVTA), for symptomatic circumscribed choroidal hemangioma.. Methods. We retrospectively reviewed clinical records of 16 patient treated from January 2001 to May 2006 For highly melanocytic tumors, lipofuscin will characteristically be bright orange. For more lightly pigmented or amelanotic choroidal melanoma, lipofuscin may appear ruddy brown. Other benign tumors, such as circumscribed choroidal hemangioma, can also have overlying lipofuscin, but its presence may be nearly undetectable by ophthalmoscopy CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): We present our experience with implantation of an Ahmed glaucoma valve in a 9-year-old girl with Sturge-Weber syndrome with choroidal hemangioma. In this case of childhood glaucoma, the choice of surgical procedure should be based on the efficacy and elimination of intra-and post-operative complications Introduction •Diffuse choroidal hemangioma is an uncommon and benign type of vascular hamartoma •Oftentimes associated with Sturge-Weber syndrome •Characterized by diffuse choroidal thickening with possible overlying non-rhegmatogenous retinal detachment •Cystoid macula edema (CME) may also be presen
The treatment options for choroidal hemangioma include photodynamic therapy which is the preferred modality, transpupillary thermotherapy, plaque radiotherapy, proton beam radiotherapy and external beam radiotherapy.1 Enucleation is rarely indicated when the patient has painful blind eye due to secondary effects of the tumour. The lesions can. Choroidal hemangioma is a benign intraocular vascular tumor that can present in 2 forms: circumscribed and diffuse.1 Circumscribed choroidal hemangioma presents without systemic manifestations. Diffuse choroidal hemangioma (DCH) usually presents as part of Sturge-Weber syndrome or its variants as an ill-defined mass in the choroid with a red-orange hue and indistinct margins.2,3 DCH can lead.

In this photo, ICG dye rather than fluorescein dye has been injected into the patient's vein. This dye images the vessels in the choroid, the layer beneath the retina, better than does fluorescein dye. The large vessels within the choroidal hemangioma are well seen, as well as the more. A circumscribed choroidal hemangioma is a benign vascular tumor of the choroid that is composed of blood vessels of varying size. The tumors usually are round or oval, slightly elevated, and have a subtle orange-red coloration, which makes them difficult to distinguish from the surrounding choroid Choroidal hemangioma is a benign and relatively rare vascular tumor. It can present as a discrete, well-circumscribed lesion or as a diffuse tumor. The diffuse form can be very large and is most often associated with Sturge-Weber syndrome. Clearly, our patient has the more circumscribed form Choroidal hemangioma is an uncommon benign vascular tumor of the choroid that can be circumscribed or diffuse. Circumscribed choroidal hemangiomas are usually diagnosed between the second to fourth decade of life when they cause visual disturbances owing to the development of an exudative retinal detachment. Circumscribed tumors occur sporadically, without any associated local or systemic.
Objective: Choroidal hemangioma (CH) is a benign vascular tumor that induces subretinal fluid collection or exudative retinal detachment and consequent visual symptoms. Current standard treatments for CH include cryotherapy, diathermy, photocoagulation, photodynamic therapy, transpupillary thermotherapy, and radiation therapy Circumscribed choroidal hemangioma is an uncommon, benign vascular tumor manifesting as an orange-red mass in the posterior pole of the eye. Serous retinal detachment accounts for decreased vision in most patients. Diagnosis of this tumor is challenging with many patients initially misdiagnosed with choroidal melanoma or metastasis. Several ancillary tests such as ultrasonography, fluorescein. But if a hemangioma affects vision or causes other problems, treatments include medications or laser surgery: Beta blocker drugs. In small, superficial hemangiomas, a gel containing the drug timolol may be applied to the affected skin. A severe infantile hemangioma may disappear if treated with an oral solution of propranolol Of Choroidal hemangioma (CH) is a hamartomatous vascular the various methods of radiotherapy available, stereotactic tumor with two distinct forms, circumscribed and diffuse, radiosurgery has the advantage of accurately focused which is determined by the extent of choroidal involvement Choroidal hemangioma is an unusual, benign vascular hamartomas whose exact incidence is not clear. It usually presents between second to fourth decades of life. It can either be asymptomatic or present with varied symptoms like reduced vision, metamorphopsia, and photopsias ..

An extremely important diagnostic clue, if present, is a history of a known primary tumor. Many lesions may be confused with choroidal metastases, e.g., choroidal melanoma, choroidal osteoma, choroidal hemangioma, choroidal neovascularization with disciform scar, posterior scleritis, and other rare.
the diagnosis of multifocal circumscribed choroidal hemangioma (CCH). There was no evidence of Sturge- Weber syndrome. CCH is usually solitary with only one reported case of multifocal CCH in the literature. BACkgRoUnd Circumscribed choroidal hemangiomas (CCHs) are benign vascular hamartomas of uncertain aetiolog Circumscribed choroidal hemangioma (CCH) is an un-common, benign vascular tumor manifesting as a discrete smooth, round, orange-red mass located posteriorly to the equator, mostly in the macular and peripapillary region.1 Although CCH is a benign lesion and is probably congenital We report three new cases of patients with Sturge-Weber Syndrome and symptomatic retinal detachments from diffuse choroidal hemangiomas successfully treated with photodynamic therapy (PDT) and review medical literature on the available treatment options for choroidal hemangiomas. All patients were treated with a single session of PDT with verteporfin infused at a concentration of 6 mg/m(2) and. (Choroidal nevi are not typically observed in young children.) The chances of a nevus transforming into a malignancy are low (one in 500 choroidal nevi will undergo a transformation into a melanoma if monitored for 10 years). When examined with an opthalmoscope most choroidal nevi appear gray, brown, yellow, or a combination of colors
