Persistent Hyaloid, posterior variant addressed by vitrectomy

DOI: 10.3207/1057585091

A prominent pucker-like formation in a child is diagnosed as posterior variant of primary persistent hyaloid. After vitrectomy a thick membrane can be aspirated and peeled of the macula with the cutter. Petechial hemorrhages suggest the ILM is gone with the epimacular membrane, which is confirmed by ICG staining. At the outer prominent rim of this process no further tissue can be peeled off.
