PEREZ-ALVAREZ, M.J.; ALEJANDRE-ALBA, N. y GARCIA-SANCHEZ, J.. Combined hamartoma of the retina and retinal pigment epithelium diagnosed by retinal angiography and optical coherence tomography. Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol [online]. 2008, vol.83, n.3, pp.193-196. ISSN 0365-6691.
Clinical case: This report is based on the case of a 35-year-old woman who developed a combined hamartoma of the retina and retinal pigment epithelium in her right eye. The diagnosis was determined based on the fundus examination: hyperplasia of the retinal pigment epithelium cells, tortuosity of the vessels and epiretinal membrane. Discussion: Optical coherence tomography and retinal angiography are important to rule out malignant melanoma of the choroid and retinoblastoma. Regular follow-up is essential because reduction in visual acuity can be related to an epiretinal membrane, neovascular membrane or vitreous hemorrhage.
