Abstract
AT A GLANCE
• Retinal vasoproliferative tumors (VPTs) typically develop in individuals in their 30s and 40s.
• Primary VPTs are deemed idiopathic in otherwise healthy eyes, whereas secondary VPTs have been associated with preexisting congenital, inflammatory, vascular, traumatic, and dystrophic retinal conditions. Secondary forms are more often bilateral, multiple, and accompanied by poorer visual acuity.
• Both types of VPTs are benign, but either can compromise vision due to retinal exudation, retinal detachment, intraretinal edema, membrane formation, and vitreous hemorrhage.
• Management of VPTs depends on tumor features and patient symptoms.
