We evaluated 16 eyes of choroidal tumor using indocyanine green angiography. Five eyes of choroidal malignant melanoma showed pronounced hypofluorescence throughout the angiographic phases sharply defining the extent of the tumor. In 8 eyes of choroidal angioma, numerous dilated vessels were shown during the early angiographic phase. Intense hyperfluorescence developed during the middle to late angiographic phases due to extravasation and pooling of dye. In 3 eyes of metastatic choroidal tumor, the early angiographic phase was characterized by hypofluorescence and poor visibility of choroidal vessels. Tissue staining became more intense towards the late phase. The observed features were characteristic for each of the three types of choroidal tumor, suggesting the value of indocyanine green angiography in the differential diagnosis.
