Choroidal hemangioma is a rare, benign vascular ocular tumor that presents as either a circumscribed mass or as a diffuse variant. Circumscribed choroidal hemangiomas (CCH) resemble posterior segment lesions such as choroidal melanoma, choroidal metastases, central serous chorioretinopathy, or nonspecific retinal detachment. A circumscribed choroidal hemangioma often appears as a subtle red–orange mass or as a greyish lesion in the posterior choroid. In rare instances, CCH may be associated with sub retinal fluid accumulation and retinal detachment. In the literature, CCH have been reported in Caucasian, Hispanic and Chinese patients. However, research and case reports about CCH in young Indian patients are relatively rare. Here, we present a case of a middle aged Indian male who presented to Retina Clinic, AMUIO, and Aligarh with the complaints of reduced vision and central scotoma in right eye. After a detailed clinical examination and investigations, a diagnosis of CCH in right eye was made and the patient was advised Photodynamic Therapy.
