A 13-year-old female presented with acute-onset pain and redness in the left eye with a history of poor vision in that eye. On examination, a port-wine stain was present involving the ipsilateral eyelids, and the vision in the affected eye was no perception of light with elevated intraocular pressure and indirect ophthalmoscopy showing total retinal detachment. Ultrasonography B-scan showed a dome-shaped lesion with smooth contours and high irregular internal reflectivity and total retinal detachment suggestive of a circumscribed choroidal hemangioma. The patient was treated symptomatically for pain and elevated intraocular pressure. Neurology and oncology opinion was sought for systemic evaluation and radiotherapy.
