This case study reports a pediatric case of a combined hamartoma of the retina and retinal pigment epithelium (CHR-RPE) successfully treated with pars plana vitrectomy (PPV), membrane peeling, and internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling. In this rare tumor, adding ILM peeling to the surgical treatment of CHR-RPE with epiretinal membrane may result in a favorable outcome.
