abstract

  • Patients who have undergone vitrectomy for complications of X-linkedretinoschisis (XLRS) have demonstrated an improvement in foveal schisis after pars plana vitrectomy. We report the case of a 10-year-old boy with XLRS and bilateral foveal schisis in whom macula-involving retinal detachment in one eye was associated with a resolution of foveal schisis in that eye. This case provides additional support for a role of vitreoretinal traction in the pathogenesis of foveal schisis in XLRS.
