Retinal astrocytic tumors are benign tumors representing two clinical types: astrocytic hamartoma and “acquired” retinal astrocytoma. Retinal astrocytic hamartomas are frequently associated with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC). “Acquired” retinal astrocytomas are rare astrocytic tumors that develop in somewhat older individuals who have no clinical manifestations of TSC or other systemic syndromes.
