Abstract Details



Purpose:

To report a case series of five patients diagnosed with choroidal schwannoma at the Liverpool Ocular Oncology Centre

Setting:

Retrospective, nonrandomized study that includes consecutive patients who diagnosed with choroidal schwannoma at the Liverpool Ocular Oncology Centre between 1995 to 2007

Methods:

Patients with choroidal schwannoma were identified by searching the computerized database of the Liverpool Ocular Oncology Centre

Results:

The patients (3 male, 2 female) ranged in age from 15 to 45 years. Clinical features included hard exudates, retinal feeder vessels, and serous retinal detachment. Three tumours were treated by enucleation, trans-scleral local resection; and combined bevacizumab and photodynamic therapy respectively. Two were observed after confirmation of the diagnosis by biopsy

Conclusions:

Choroidal schwannoma has a variety of clinical manifestations. Biopsy with immunohistochemistry is required for diagnosis. Tumours not amenable to resection may respond to photodynamic therapy
