    Optic coherence tomography appearances of retinal astrocytic hamartoma and systemic features in tuberous sclerosis of Japanese patients

    Purpose: To describe the optical coherence tomography findings of retinal astrocytic hamartoma of tuberous sclerosis and to confirm the association between the type of retinal astrocytic hamartoma and systemic manifestations in Japanese patients. Study Design: A retrospective observational case series. Methods: The medical records of 35 patients with tuberous sclerosis who underwent ophthalmological examination were reviewed.
