Retinal cavernous hemangiomas are benign vascular anomalies that are typically unilateral and located outside of the macula. Fluorescein angiography findings include an early slow-filling, non-leaking lesion with late intermixed lobules of hyperfluorescence and hypofluoresence secondary to plasma and erythrocyte sedimentation. We present a novel case of unilateral macular cavernous hemangioma with bilateral peripheral vascular anomalies and nonperfusion. This may represent a phenotypic variation of hemangiomas that, in conjunction with recent histopathologic and genetic findings, may aid in future therapies for a disease that has been traditionally observed due to slow progression.
