(12) In 2000, Heimann et al (13) suggested that many cases previously reported as localized retinal gliosis should actually be classified as VPTR because of similar histopathologic features.
On the basis of the histopathologic features of MRG reported here and in other studies, (1-5) those of VPTR, (13,14) and the presumed acquired retinal hemangiomas (15) reported previously, we believe that the 3 entities belong to a spectrum of the same disease process.
