Abstract Details


To describe a case of macular schisis that spontaneously reapposed


Kettering General Hospital, Kettering. UK


One case of a high-myope with optic disc cleft and macular schisis was followed up with serial Optical Coherence Tomography (Cirrus HD OCT, Carl Zeiss Meditec, Germany) and fundus photographs


A 64 year old Caucasian female who was a high myope and Glaucoma associated with optic disc haemorrhage had developed a macular schisis. The schisis was contiguous with the optic disc and the cavity was in communication with a cleft at the optic disc margin as demonstrated by OCT scanning. The peak of the retinal thickness was 574μ. The schisis was present for about 18 months after which it closed spontaneously. At this point fibrosis of the cleft was observable by high-definition tomography. Throughout this period the patient maintained a good visual acuity.


Our case has demonstrates that macular retinoschisis resulting from an optic disc cleft can close spontaneously without the need for vitreo-retinal intervention.
