A report on 14 patients who were treated for clinically confirmed haemangioma by Xenon-photocoagulation between 1961 and 1978. With one single exception it was possible to eliminate the accompanying retinal detachment and to stop further growth of the tumor. In accordance with some cases already published and in contrast to the opinion of Witmer, photocoagulation is recommended as a simple and effective method for treatment of choroidal haemangiomas.
