    Retinal astrocytoma, also known as astrocytic hamartoma, is a rare benign tumor that occurs in the retina of the eye. It is a type of hamartoma, which means that it is made up of normal tissue that is growing in an abnormal way. Retinal astrocytomas are typically found in children and young adults and may be associated with a genetic condition called tuberous sclerosis complex. They can cause vision problems such as decreased visual acuity, visual field defects, and retinal detachment.
