Abstract

Purpose:

To report concomitant macular hole and central serous chorioretinopathy after blunt trauma.

Methods:

Case presentation. A 31-year-old man presented with a complaint of a reduction in visual acuity and blurred vision in the right eye after blunt eye trauma. The patient did not have a history of any systemic disorders and drug administration.

Results:

On ocular examination, best corrected visual acuity was 2/20 in the right eye and 20/20 in the left eye. His intraocular pressures were 14 mmHg right eye and 13 mmHg left eye by applanation tonometry. Dilated fundus examination of the right eye showed macular hole and serous macular detachment, whereas the left eye was completely normal. Optical coherence tomography confirmed the full-thickness macular hole and subretinal fluid in the right eye, and ink-blot leakage pattern was determined in fundus fluorescein angiography. The patient was followed up without systemic therapy. Three months later, the vision was 10/20 in the right eye with completely closed macular hole and complete resolution of subretinal fluid.

Conclusion:

This is the first case which describes concomitant macular hole and central serous chorioretinopathy after blunt eye trauma. This presentation demonstrates that macular hole and central serous chorioretinopathy can be developed after blunt trauma. Both pathology may result with spontaneous closure of macular hole and spontaneous resolution of subretinal fluid within 3 months.
