Abstract

Purpose:

To report a case of spontaneous closure of a full-thickness macular hole after a posterior subtenon injection of triamcinolone in a patient with Irvine-Gass syndrome.

Methods:

Case report and literature review.

Results:

A 70-year-old man presented to the retina clinic with visual disturbance in his right eye after an uneventful cataract surgery. Patient was found to have macular edema associated with a full-thickness macular hole, treated with a posterior subtenon injection of triamcinolone with subsequent spontaneous closure of the hole and excellent visual acuity.

Conclusion:

This case demonstrates possible resolution of a condition which traditionally requires surgical intervention, with a nonsurgical approach.
