This manuscript describes a case of a retinal capillary hemangioma which had been impairing our patient’s vision for a number of years. We performed widefield retinal imaging which revealed the patient’s vasoproliferative tumor, as well as fluorescein angiography, which displayed its intricate vascular network, depicting the characteristic vascular nature of this vasoproliferative tumor. This case also underlines the importance of ruling out other disease locations due to its association with von Hippel-Lindau syndrome.
