Abstract

Combined hamartoma of the retina and retinal pigment epithelium (CHRRPE) is a rare, benign, usually onesided disease that can cause significant painless vision loss. Combined hamartoma of the retina and retinal pigment epithelium is most commonly found in isolated forms, but reports are also available describing compounds with neurofibromatosis types 1 and 2. CHRRPE has increased retinal pigmentation, tortuous vessels, and the presence of epiretinal membranes.

In our article, we present a case report of a 6-year-old girl who was diagnosed with CHRRPE.
