AZEVEDO, Marcelo Laurentino de  and  SANTO, Ruth Miyuki. Retinoblastoma with peripheral retinal angiomalike hamartoma an unusual association. Arq. Bras. Oftalmol. [online]. 1994, vol.57, n.1, pp.10-15. ISSN 0004-2749.

This paper presents the clinical and histopathological findings of a retinoblastoma associated with an angiomalike hamartoma in the peripheral retina, which on the basis of clinical findings and ultrasonography was not detected. Differential diagnosis are discussed and an embriogenic hypothesis is proposed, having as alternative, the new data on the biology of intraocular neovascularization.

Keywords : Retinoblastoma; Hamartoma vascular da retina periférica; Angiomatose daretina; Patogenia das neovascularizações.
