Retinal astrocytoma
My 9 yr old who has no medical problems had an eye exam to see about contacts (he has myopia). The ophthalmologist saw an abnormality and referred him to a retinal specialist who looked at and concluded it is "most likely" a retinal astrocytic hamartoma. I have read that these are associated with a condition called tuberous sclerosis but my child has no other findings to suggest he has this.  Has anyone else seen or heard of this and should I be concerned other than he has a suspected congenital defect?
