Abstract

CASE REPORT:

A 24-year-old male presented with visual acuity loss of the right eye. Examination of the right eye fundus showed a serous detachment of the posterior pole associated with optic disc coloboma. The patient refused surgical treatment. After six months an improvement in visual acuity was observed with the disappearance of macular subretinal fluid.

DISCUSSION:

The macular detachment is a known complication of the optic disc coloboma. Different therapeutic options have been used, although spontaneous re-attachment may also occur as shown in this case.
