We aimed to demonstrate importance of opticak coherence tomograpgy in diagnosis of congenital hereditary retinoschisis.
A 13-year-old male presented to our clinic with progressive visual detoriation. Symptoms were started 3 years previously and worsened in past 2 years. There was no family history. He had no previous history of trauma, inflammatory or infectious ocular diseases. Best-corrected visual acuity was 0.3 in both eyes. Refraction was +2.50 dioptrics in the both eyes. High-resolution optical coherence tomography (OCT) revealed wide hyporeflective cystoid spaces that split the neurosensory retina at the centre of the fovea and small cystic space that formed bridges between the outer and inner retinal layers in perifoveal area bilaterally.
In this case report, we presented the OCT findings in a patient diagnosed with congenital retinoschisis. Current developments related to the management of congenital retinoschisis disease were also presented.
