    Swept-source Optical Coherence Tomography of Retinal Cavernous Hemangioma: A New Imaging Modality

    The authors report a new, non-invasive diagnostic method in the diagnosis of retinal cavernous hemangioma (RCH). A 6-year-old girl was referred for a non-clearing retinal hemorrhage of 6 months’ duration. Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT) showed an intraretinal lesion with cystic-like internal appearance. Optical shadowing was present, preventing establishment of any subretinal component to the lesion. Swept-source OCT (SS-OCT) showed an intraretinal lesion consisting of a group of clearly defined grape-like caverns with overlying preretinal tissue. Wide-field fundus fluorescein angiography (WF-FFA) confirmed the diagnosis of RCH. SS-OCT was superior to FD-OCT in showing the internal anatomy of the RCH and ...
