Retinale Tumoren im Erwachsenenalter – Teil 2: Nichtvaskuläre Tumoren der Retina und des retinalen Pigmentepithels

Translated title of the contribution: Retinal tumors in adults: Part 2 nonvascular tumors of retina and retinal pigment epithelium

Abstract

Retinal tumors are a heterogeneous group of congenital and acquired lesions. In the second part of the article retinocytic and glial cell tumors of the retina, tumors of the retinal pigment epithelium, malignant tumors, such as lymphomas and metastases are presented. In benign and malignant tumors visual symptoms, such as exudative retinal detachment occur, which often lead to irreversible visual impairments. Because visual symptoms are often a manifestation of systemic diseases, the ophthalmologist plays an important role in the accurate and early diagnosis of retinal tumors. This article reviews the most important clinical and diagnostic features of retinal tumors in adults, the systemic associations and the literature on currently available treatment strategies.
