Sambricio J, Fernández-Reyes M, De-Lucas-Viejo B, Bengoa-González Á, Mencía-Gutiérrez E - Case Rep Ophthalmol Med (2015)

Bottom Line: The authors introduce a 42-year-old woman with a choroidal osteoma.New tests that were unavailable during the first diagnosis were performed such as Fundus Autofluorescence or Enhanced Depth Imaging-Optical Coherence Tomography (EDI-OCT).These tests show characteristics of the tumors and allow us to realize a visual prognosis for the patient.

ABSTRACT
The authors introduce a 42-year-old woman with a choroidal osteoma. After 10 years the patient presented a second choroidal osteoma in the same eye; this osteoma has been growing in the last years. New tests that were unavailable during the first diagnosis were performed such as Fundus Autofluorescence or Enhanced Depth Imaging-Optical Coherence Tomography (EDI-OCT). These tests show characteristics of the tumors and allow us to realize a visual prognosis for the patient.

Mentions: We present the case of a 42-year-old woman who was diagnosed with choroidal osteoma in the left eye, located in a juxtapapillary position ten years before, with a visual acuity of 20/20. The right eye was unaffected. During follow-up, seven years later, she presented a second choroidal osteoma in the same eye. In this case, the tumor was located in a paramacular position. This second tumor was growing every year, approaching the fovea (Figure 1). Visual acuity remained normal and only a visual field scotoma could be seen in the visual field test. A review of the literature was performed; no similar case was found.
