Abstract

PURPOSE:

The aim was to report the evolution of a case of von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) juxtapapillary retinal capillary haemangioblastoma (RCH) by optical coherence tomography (OCT3).

CASE REPORT:

The progress of a 24-year-old man suffering from VHL disease with a juxtapapillary haemangioblastoma and a small peripheral lesion was followed for 26.4 months with fundus photographs and OCT of the optic nerve head using the optic nerve head rim volume, ranging from 1.106 to 1.895 mm(3). Visual acuity remained 6/6 throughout.

CONCLUSIONS:

OCT can be a useful tool in the follow up and decision-making of patients with small retinal capillary haemangioblastoma of the optic nerve.
