A 2-month-old premature infant (37 weeks post-menstrual age) was referred for persistent pre-retinal bleed following laser treatment for retinopathy of prematurity. Detailed examination revealed a reddish purple, raised, lobulated lesion at the junction of the vascularised retina and laser scars. Typical clinical findings along with fluorescein angiography helped establish the diagnosis of retinal cavernous haemangioma. This report describes the youngest reported case of retinal cavernous haemangioma in a premature child.
