A 6-year-old girl with visual impairment in the right eye (OD) was referred for an eye evaluation. The fundus of the OD showed a fibrotic orange endophytic lesion located adjacent to the optic disc. In retinal optical coherence tomography, a local tractional retinal detachment and choroidal neovascular membrane were observed together also with the presence of subretinal fluid. Due to the vision of the OD evolved to nonlight perception in the following exam, enucleation was performed. The pathology report was correlated with hemangioblastoma. Herein, we describe a case of a young girl with a retinal hemangioblastoma with quick evolution and without prior systemic diagnosis.
