The retinal tumor provisionally referred to as presumed solitary circumscribed retinal astrocytic proliferation (PSCRAP) is a rare, benign lesion of unknown pathogenesis and histopathology. The authors present a case of PSCRAP that was analyzed with spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT), which demonstrated a demarcation between the mass and the retinal nerve fiber layer. This finding stands in contrast to previous descriptions using time-domain OCT, suggesting that this tumor may originate from mid-retinal layers rather than the nerve fiber layer. In addition, the OCT of PSCRAP is distinct from that of astrocytic hamartoma associated with tuberous sclerosis complex.
