Abstract Share this page

We studied two cases of bilateral choroidal osteoma in an otherwise healthy 5-year-old boy and his only sibling, a 7-year-old sister. Both children were known to have normal fundus appearances at younger ages. The tumor showed slow growth in all four eyes, but severe visual acuity loss developed in three eyes because of neovascular complications that could not be effectively treated by photocoagulation. Secondary retinal cysts developed in three eyes.
