A boy aged 13 years was referred for choroidal mass of the right eye. Visual acutiy was 20/60 OD and 20/20 OS. Intraocular pressures and anterior segment examination findings were normal. Fundus examination revealed orange, subretinal mass with associated subretinal fluid in the posterior pole. The lesion was followed closely and throughout a series of visits, the lesion and fluid continued to progress, the visual acuity worsened to 20/200, and the tumor mass extended closer to the fovea (Figure 1). The mass measured 15 mm in basal diameter with a thickness of 6.4 mm on B-scan ultrasonography.
