RESOLUTION OF FOVEAL CYST AFTER THE RELEASE OF VITREOMACULAR ATTACHMENT IN EYE WITH MACULAR TELANGIECTASIA TYPE 2

Machiko Kimura et al. Retin Cases Brief Rep.

Abstract

Purpose: To report a case of macular telangiectasia Type 2 that showed a resolution of a foveal cystic change accompanying the release of vitreomacular attachment.

Methods: Retrospective chart review.

Report of the case: A 75-year-old man presented with a bilateral decrease in visual acuity and metamorphopsia. At the initial visit, the left eye demonstrated a hyporeflective foveal cyst and a perifoveal vitreous detachment on optical coherence tomography. The characteristic clinical findings were consistent with the diagnosis of macular telangiectasia Type 2. Fifteen months later, the patient returned with a remission of the metamorphopsia in the left eye. The left eye had a vitreous detachment from the macula, and the hyporeflective foveal cyst was completely resolved.

Conclusion: At least in some cases, vitreous traction or attachment may play a role in the morphologic changes seen in macular telangiectasia Type 2.
