Choroidal Hemangioma

TA is a 52-year-old man who complained of some visual distortion in his right field of vision for several weeks. He was seen by an ophthalmologist who documented visual acuity of 20/30-2 OD and 20/20 OS. Ophthalmoscopic examination found a yellow-orange elevated lesion just below the macula. Fluorescein angiography was performed and demonstrated mottled leakage of dye within the lesion that increased over several minutes. These findings were consistent with a choroidal hemangioma but an amelanotic melanoma or metastatic tumor could not be eliminated completely.
