Everolimus to treat aggressive retinal astrocytic hamartoma in tuberous sclerosis complex.
Retinal astrocytic hamartomas (RAH) are the most frequent ocular manifestation of tuberous sclerosis complex and are usually indolent, requiring only observation. We report an aggressive RAH subtype in a child unresponsive to anti-VEGF and laser therapy. Treatment with systemic everolimus was well-tolerated and significantly reduced ocular (and nonocular) tumor size and fluid exudation.
