Abstract

Vasoproliferative retinal tumors are benign tumors of unknown origin often accompanied by vitreoretinal inflammation. A 21-year-old female patient presented with acute reduced unilateral visual acuity. A solid yellow vascularized lesion was present in the inferior temporal retina accompanied by localized retinal detachment and accumulation of hard exudations. The only finding was an increased Bartonella henselae titer. Persistence of uveitis and blurred vision led to therapy for Bartonella henselae with macrolide antibiotics and successful tumor regression was achieved by cryotherapy.
