[Article in Polish]


Purpose: The aim of this study was to evaluate the presence of IL-8, TNF-alpha, IFN-gamma in subretinal fluid of patients with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment.

Material and methods: We studied 15 patients operated on retinal detachment. The presence of cytokines was evaluated using immunoenzymatic assay.

Results: IL-8, TNF-alpha and IFN-gamma were found in all subretinal fluid samples. The concentration of cytokines in patients with retinal detachment lasting to 2 months was higher than in cases of retinal detachment over 2 months.
