von-Hippel Disease

  • A case of von-Hippel disease (capillary hemangioma) involving the optic disc:
    • Usually the afferent and efferent vessels are not apparent
    • Can be complicated with:
      • Lipid exudation or hard exudates in the macular area
      • Exudative retinal detachment
      • Vitreous hemorrhage
      • The overlying vitreous changes with fibrovascular tissue formation can be a source of traction and result in tractional or rhegmatogenous retinal detachment
