Long-Term Follow-Up of Congenital Simple Hamartoma of the Retinal Pigment Epithelium: A Case Report

Background: Congenital simple hamartoma of the retinal pigment epithelium (CSHRPE) is a rare benign tumor of the retinal pigment epithelium characterized by a focal, darkly pigmented nodule in the macular lesion in healthy persons. We report a case of CSHRPE with long-term follow-up. Case: A 41-year-old Japanese woman was incidentally discovered to have a dark lesion on the fundus of the left eye. We evaluated the patient by measuring her best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and by slit-lamp biomicroscopy, fundus color photography, and optical coherence tomography (OCT) over a 10-year period. The BCVA gradually declined during the early follow-up period, having decreased from 1.2 to 0.8 in the left eye 3 years after the initial examination, and then has been maintained for the following 7 years. The lesion did not show a change in OCT 10 years after the first examination. Conclusion: It is important to follow a CSHRPE carefully over the long term because visual acuity might decrease.
