Abstract

Even after long-term follow-up the natural course of retinal astrocytic hamartomas seems to be favourable, with visual loss and significant growth being unlikely to occur. A thorough ophthalmological and general evaluation, in order to rule out an underlying systemic disease and to document the ocular status, are needed initially. Thereafter eye examinations can be scheduled in long intervals.
