Elson, MS; Ferdinand Rodriguez, MD; Maura Di Nicola, MD; Basil K. Williams Jr., MD A 34-year-old Caucasian woman with a past medical history of hypertension presented with acute floaters in the right eye (OD) for 1 week. Best-corrected visual acu- ity (VA) was 20/20 in both eyes. Fundus examination OD (Figure 1) revealed a retinal hemangioblastoma (RH) in the temporal midperiphery with a prominent feeding artery and draining vein. A retinal arterial microaneurysm (RAM) was noted with- in the feeding artery, and subretinal hemorrhage with a cuff of fluid was present. Fundus autofluorescence (Figure 2) showed hypoautofluorescence in the area of the RH, RAM, and subretinal hemorrhage. A hyperauto- fluorescent ring surrounding the hemorrhage suggested shallow subretinal fluid. Early phase fluorescein angi- ography (Figure 3) demonstrated appropriate arterial and venous filling and hyperfluorescence of the RH. Figure 1. Ultra-widefield fundus photograph of the right eye reveal- ing a midperipheral retinal hemangioblastoma with a prominent feeding artery and draining vein. A retinal arterial microaneurysm arises from the feeding artery, producing subretinal hemorrhage with a surrounding cuff of subretinal fluid, and a small amount of intraretinal and vitreous hemorrhage along the inferior arcade. Figure 2. Fundus autofluorescence demonstrates hypoautofluo- rescence corresponding to the retinal hemangioblastoma, retinal arterial microaneurysm, and intraretinal and subretinal hemor- rhage with a ring of hyperautofluorescence around hemorrhage, suggestive of subretinal fluid.
