Zeitschrift:

Autor:
Dr. med. univ. Gregor Kastl

Summary

Background

In many cases, macular hole and epiretinal membrane require surgical therapy. In rare cases, spontaneous resolution is possible.

Patients and methods

Three cases of vitreoretinal diseases are presented: one case of spontaneous closure of an idiopathic stage III macular hole and two cases of spontaneous self-resolution of an epiretinal membrane.

Results

The idiopathic stage III macular hole resolved after a period of more than 6 years of observation. The idiopathic epiretinal membranes separated spontaneously after several months to years of observation.

Conclusion

Awareness of the possible self-resolution of macular hole and epiretinal membrane is clinically relevant in the treatment of these conditions.
