Case 13

Patient Presentation: A 38-year-old female was referred to an ophthalmologist after her optometrist detected an abnormality in one of her optic discs on fundoscopy.  Her visual acuity on presentation is 20/20 OU with no RAPD. Humphrey’s visual fields were performed below.

Question: The OCT macula 5-line raster is shown above. What abnormality is seen?

Question: Considering that the patient has normal visual function, mild left optic disc edema and irregular contour of the globe, what is the most likely diagnosis?

Learning Objectives:

1. To recognize the manifestations of cavernous hemangioma on OCT

2. Identify neuroimaging features that suggest cavernous hemangioma
