Purpose: We report two cases of Wyburn-Mason syndrome that illustrate the spectrum of peripheral retinal ischemia seen in this condition. Observations: A 12-year-old female presented with a retinal arteriovenous malformation and sclerotic vessels associated with retinal ischemia on fluorescein angiography, as well as an ipsilateral ophthalmic arteriovenous malformation on magnetic resonance imaging. An 11-year-old male presented with retinal vascular engorgement and tortuosity along with a central retinal vein occlusion and secondary neovascularization. Conclusions and Importance: Retinal ischemia in Wyburn-Mason syndrome is heterogeneous and may be progressive, with secondary complications that result in neovascularization. Furthermore, it is necessary to recognize that this is a systemic condition that requires neurological evaluation.
