Coats’ disease and retinoblastoma are the two common types of orbital pathology in young children. These two conditions are prognostically different but have overlapping imaging features. We present a case of proven Coats’ disease to illustrate the specific imaging features, which can help the readers differentiate it from retinoblastoma. This report is supplemented by a literature review.
