Three cases of retrolental fibroplasia with vascular tufts at different locations are described. They probably represent mesenchymal proliferation in response to severe hypoxia. The tufts are reddish-pink in color and angiographically do not leak fluorescein. When present posterior to the equator they suggest an immature retinal circulation and the visual prognosis is poor.
