- Vascular tumors of the ocular fundus include a diverse group of congenital and acquired lesions. The major vascular tumors of the retina include retinal capillary hemangioma, cavernous hemangioma of the retina, retinal vasoproliferative tumor, and racemose hemangiomatosis of the retina. Choroidal vascular tumors include circumscribed and diffuse choroidal hemangioma. Visual symptoms secondary to exudative retinal detachment are a major source of morbidity. While many therapeutic modalities exist, treatment can be challenging. In addition, many of the vascular tumors of the retina and choroid have significant associations with systemic disease. The ophthalmologist plays an important role in accurate and early diagnosis, as ocular symptoms are often the most common presenting manifestation. In this symposium, the clinical and diagnostic features of the major retinal and choroidal vascular tumors, their systemic associations, and treatment strategies are reviewed.
