    Classification and treatment follow-up of a juxtapapillary retinal hemangioblastoma with optical coherence tomography angiography

    Purpose Only an endophytic growth pattern in juxtapapillary retinal hemangioblastoma (JRH) is an indication for surgical treatment, but classification of growth types is difficult using conventional imaging techniques. This case report describes the use of optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) features for classification and treatment follow-up in a case with JRH. Observations The JRH of this patient was easily detected with two different OCT-A methods in both en-face and cross-sectional B-scan images, and was classified as a sessile growth type. This growth type excluded the treatment option of vitreoretinal surgery with excision of the lesion or ligation of the feeder ...
