Choroidal hemangiomas are benign vascular hamartomatous tumors of the choroid. They present in two forms based on the extent of choroidal involvement:. The exact incidence worldwide not known but it is rare. Nearly all reported cases are in Caucasians and there is no gender preference. No known genetic predisposition for CCH. SW syndrome is entirely sporadic and is associated with DCH.
Observation if asymptomatic. DCH need to be worked up for Sturge-Weber syndrome and managed accordingly. The end-point of treatment is resolution of fluid and not complete regression of tumor:. A long delay between the onset of symptoms and treatment is associated with poorer visual outcome. Complications include neovascular glaucoma secondary to chronic extensive retinal detachments, with some requiring enucleation.

Circumscribed choroidal hemangiomas are benign vascular hamartomas without systemic associations. Generally, they are orange-red elevated masses, which are found posterior to the equator. Lesions are usually solitary and unilateral. Overlying subretinal fluid, serous retinal detachment and cystoid macular edema are common findings. Intravenous fluorescein angiography, indocyanine green angiography, ultrasonography, optical coherence tomography and enhanced depth imaging are helpful ancillary tests for diagnosis of circumscribed choroidal hemangiomas. Asymptomatic circumscribed choroidal hemangiomas do not require treatment.
