Answer

von Hippel-Lindau (retinal angiomatosis)

On retinal examination, an elevated globular mass and enlarged feeding artery and vein are seen next to the lesion.

Exudation from the mass causes retinal detachment. Intravitreal and intraretinal hemorrhage causes loss of vision.

Neovascular glaucoma is observed in long-standing cases.
