In this clinical video, Dr. Sid Schechet and colleagues manage a case of epiretinal membrane (ERM) with astrocytic harmartoma. The 7-year-old male patient with neurofibromatosis type-2 was referred to the University of Chicago with a worsening vision due to the ERM and combined hamartoma of the retina and retinal pigment epithelium (RPE). Intraoperative OCT-guided vitrectomy was performed with membrane peeling, and the specimen was sent to pathology with an informative histopathological analysis. During surgery, several peripheral retinal astrocytic hamartomas were found in the same eye. At 1-month postop, the patient reported significant improvements in the quality of his vision and the retina remained flat.
