Sessile and exophytic capillary angiomas of the juxtapapillary retina and optic nerve head.

This report concerns six patients with sessile and exophytic capillary hemangiomas of the optic nerve head and juxtapapillary retina. These are probably retinal vascular hamartomas, which are frequently misdiagnosed as unilateral papilledema, papillitis, choroiditis, choroidal neovascularization, or choroidal hemangioma. Stereo fluorescein angiography is essential in identifying these tumors that usually cause loss of central vision by intraretinal and subretinal exudation into the macular region. Photocoagulation treatment was successful in two patients.
