Abstract

Macular holes in the setting of macular telangiectasia type 2 can be difficult to manage. The rates of anatomical closure after macular hole surgery are less favorable in patients with macular telangiectasia than in those with idiopathic macular holes. These differences may be due to the influence of unique pathogenic mechanisms that modulate macular hole dynamics in patients with macular telangiectasia. In this report, the authors document the multimodal imaging findings of a patient with macular telangiectasia demonstrating spontaneous macular hole closure. These findings may improve the understanding of the natural course of this entity and may have relevance for clinical management.
