Astrocytoma of Retina

Astrocytoma of Retina
Calcified slightly elevated and well demarcated astrocytoma. The early angiogram transmits some fluorescence through the tumor but there is no vascularization of the tumor. Ultrasound shows the elevation and some high reflectivity (calcification) of the tumor. OCT reveals also high reflectivity on the top, not allowing the light to enter the deep layers.
