To demonstrate the usefulness of intravenous fluorescein angiography (IVFA) in differentiating pediatric iris tumors and pseudotumors.
Non-comparative case series of 6 patients.
All lesions except iris pigment epithelial cyst demonstrated early and late hyperfluorescence. Iris stromal cyst showed mild, late pooling of fluorescein. Medulloepithelioma revealed late leakage around the lesion and uninvolved pupillary margin. Juvenile xanthogranuloma displayed diffuse, late hyperfluorescence of the lesion and entire uninvolved iris. Ectopic lacrimal gland choristoma and malignant melanoma had late leakage.
IVFA may be useful in evaluating pediatric patients with iris tumors and pseudotumors.
