Photodynamic therapy for choroidal hemangioma unresponsive to ranibizumab. One drawback to this treatment is that it needs to be repeated often. Prompt diagnosis to a retinal specialist is necessary if any uncertainty exists.

Most circumscribed are noted first when they produce visual symptoms caused by accumulation of serous subretinal fluid, degenerative changes in the macula or both.

En caso de producirse dichas situaciones, existen diversas opciones de tratamiento. Presumed acquired retinal hemangiomas. Klin Monbl Augenheilkd ; Fluorescein angiography and hemangiomas of the choroid.

Photodynamic therapy of circumscribed choroidal hemangioma. Unlike diffuse choroidal hemangiomas, which are associated with phakomatoses such as Sturge—Weber syndrome, CCH has no correlation with systemic disease. Changing concepts in management of circumscribed choroidal hemangioma.

The natural history is highly varied. Most patients had return of some macular edema three to six months after treatment. Successful treatment of Kasabach-Merritt syndrome with pentoxifylline. Hemangiomas in infants and children: J Am Acad Dermatol J Ark Med Soc ; Most retinal capillary hemangiomas can now be controlled, if not eradicated by local obliterate therapy. Beta blockade induces apoptosis in cultured capillary endothelial cells. Treatment of recurrent suprahyoid cervicofacial lymphangioma with intravenous cyclophosphamide.


Intravenous fluorescein angiography, indocyanine green angiography, ultrasonography, optical coherence tomography and enhanced depth imaging are helpful ancillary tests for diagnosis of circumscribed choroidal hemangiomas. Amsler grid was unremarkable OD and revealed left-sided metamorphopsia OS. The objective is to allow very specific treatment with minimal damage to surrounding tissue.

Choroidal hemangioma treated with photodynamic therapy using verteporfin. Later, a second surgical procedure is performed to remove the plaque. TTT is also not effective for lesions with large amounts of overlying fluid or large retinal detachments.

Rishi P, Sharma T. This technique is often used for diffuse choroidal hemangiomas but can be used for CCH as well. This method allows the radiation to be placed at the base of the tumor right under the blood supply.



It produced good resolution of subretinal fluid but often left residual scarring that could limit the patient’s visual recovery. Sus detractores argumentan que faltan estudios comparativos con otras formas de tratamiento o con la ausencia de tratamiento 1.

High internal reflectivity on A-scan, or acoustically solid on B-scan, indicates that the mass is composed of a variety of different cell types, which causes more disruption of the sound waves. Normal choroidal tissue is made of several different cell types. An associated 3—4 DD central serous retinal detachment was also noted. Pediatr Hematol Oncol ; Dilated fundus exam revealed an improvement in subretinal fluid, but a serous detachment was still present.

A four-generation pedigree with neurocutaneous manifestations and an example of bilateral retinal involvement.

CCH is characterized by high internal reflectivity since it is composed of blood vessels and other cells that are similar to the normal choroidal structure. FA was repeated as well as another session of argon laser photocoagulation.
