The origin of the fluid and precise pathophysiology of optic pit maculopathy remain unclear. It has been suggested that submacular fluid originates either from vitreous or cerebrospinal fluid. We report a case of optic pit maculopathy which was unsuccessfully treated with vitrectomy and internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling, and subsequently resolved with revision of vitrectomy and gas tamponade.

Abstract

The origin of the fluid and precise pathophysiology of optic pit maculopathy remain unclear. It has been suggested that submacular fluid originates either from vitreous or cerebrospinal fluid. We report a case of optic pit maculopathy which was unsuccessfully treated with vitrectomy and internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling, and subsequently resolved with revision of vitrectomy and gas tamponade.
