Chronic Retinal Detachment With Secondary Retinal Macrocyst and Peripheral Neovascularization

Leanne T Labriola et al. Semin Ophthalmol.

Abstract

Purpose: To report the association of a retinal macrocyst with peripheral retinal neovascularization that occurred secondary to a chronic, subclinical rhegmatogenous retinal detachment and to illustrate the utility of wide-field fundus photography.

Methods: Case Report.

Results: A 37 year-old male was diagnosed with chronic retinal detachment on routine eye examination. Further evaluation revealed intraretinal hemorrhages and a retinal macrocyst. Diagnosis was confirmed with wide-field fundus photography and fluorescein angiography. Surgery was recommended to repair the retinal detachment, to allow spontaneous resolution of the macrocyst.

Conclusion: Chronic, subclinical retinal detachments may rarely be associated with retinal macrocysts and retinal neovascularization. This altered retinal morphology can be delineated on wide-field fundus imaging, which aids in diagnosis and management.
