Abstract

PURPOSE
To report a case of eccentric macular hole formation after surgery for a traumatic macular hole.
CASE SUMMARY
A 27-year-old man was admitted to our hospital because of baseball trauma to his left eye. A vitreous hemorrhage and Berlin's edema were found in the macula. One month later, a full thickness macular hole was detected. Vitrectomy and internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling and gas injection were performed. Two months postoperatively, the primary macular hole was closed, but an eccentric macular hole temporal to the fovea was observed.
