[Retinal capillary hemangioma].


The retinal capillary hemangiomas are evolutive tumors which, solitary or multiple, present a vast clinical appearance, described under generic name of "retinal angiomatosis". We present the case of a young male patient with solitary retinal capillary hemangioma, localized in the interpapilo-macular region. The exofitic tumors were characterized by a particular arrangement of the tumoral vascular network: superficial (in the superior area) and profound (in the inferior area). This double vascular localization explains the spotted aspect of the fluorescent tumor, and also the phenomenon of "choroidal adoption".
