Abstract

PURPOSE:

To report the optical coherence tomography findings of a 5-year-old boy with familial foveal retinoschisis.

DESIGN:

Observational case report.

METHODS:

Optical coherence tomography findings in familial foveal retinoschisis was evaluated.

RESULTS:

Optical coherence tomography findings demonstrated a wide hyporeflective space that split the neurosensory retina into a thin faintly reflective outer layer and a thicker more reflective inner retinal layer. Anteroposterior or oblique linear columns were seen across this hyporeflective space and formed a bridge between the outer and inner retinal layers. Cleavage planes were outer plexiform layer and adjacent nuclear layers.

CONCLUSION:

Optical coherence tomography findings in familial foveal retinoschisis in early childhood may help us to understand the early stages of pathology.
