Abstract

PURPOSE:

To report a case of circumscribed choroidal hemangioma complicated by retinal detachment and regressed spontaneously after childbirth.

METHODS:

Clinical examination, fundus photography, spectral domain optical coherence tomography with enhanced depth imaging, fundus autofluorescence, fluorescein angiography, indocyanine green angiography, and microperimetry.

RESULTS:

A 41-year-old woman was referred with a 2-week history of decreased vision and scotoma in the left eye. She was in her sixth month of pregnancy. Fundus examination revealed a circumscribed choroidal hemangioma appearing as a solitary orange-red mass in the upper peripapillary area and neurosensory retinal detachment of the macula. After the birth, spontaneous regression of the retinal detachment was observed.

CONCLUSION:

Pregnancy may cause exacerbation of choroidal hemangioma, and regression of the exudation may occur spontaneously after delivery. Treatment is not indicated when symptoms or signs of exudation disappear.
