    Retinal racemose hemangioma (retinal arteriovenous communication) diagnosed and managed with multimodal imaging

    Purpose: Retinal racemose hemangioma (RRH) is a rare congenital abnormality of the retinal vasculature with a variety of secondary manifestations that can cause vision loss, including macular edema. This report aims to demonstrate the utility of swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography (SS-OCTA) in further characterizing this abnormality. Methods: Case report with multimodal imaging including SS-OCTA. Results: A 56-year-old woman with blurred vision was diagnosed macular edema secondary to RRH. Localization of the arterial-venous connection was identified with SS-OCTA at the deep capillary plexus (DCP). Conservative management of the associated foveal exudation ultimately led to a favorable outcome. Discussion: Observation or ...
