Most common causes are re-detachment (6-25%), cystoid macular edema (12%), epiretinal membranes (12%) and hypotony (16%) 21 .
(20) The drop in intraocular pressure and rise in ocular perfusion pressure accompanied by increased choroidal thickness may be associated with increased inflammation due to elevated prostaglandin and cytokines, which are thought to cause cystoid macular edema in the retina.

Our findings are also consistent with other reports of the presence of cystoid spaces or increased OPL thickness, although the relation to VA was not reported in these studies [9, 11].

(2) observed that more than one-half of the patients, despite receiving prompt and adequate immunomodulatory treatment, developed chronic disease, and in some cases, blindness occurred due to cataracts, glaucoma, cystoid macular edema, choroidal neovascularization.
They describe the pathophysiological basis of macular edema, different approaches of drug delivery to the posterior segment, and recommendations for treatment procedures or different therapies, discussing the definition and basic concepts of macular edema, mechanisms of retinal fluid accumulation and blood-retinal barrier breakdown, intracellular edema, central serous chorioetinopathy, diagnosis and detection, the rationale for therapy, diabetic macular edema, retinal vein occlusions, the pathophysiology of inflammatory macular edema, postsurgical cystoid macular edema, retinitis pigmentosa and other dystrophies, macular edema of choroidal origin, and other causes of macular edema.
Response to treatment and clinical presentation may vary significantly, with some patients presenting one episode of mild inflammation, whereas others have multiple recurrences of severe uveitis that include persistent vitreous opacities, epiretinal membrane, and cystoid macular edema leading to loss of eyesight.
Crystalline juvenile macular dystrophy, cystoid foveal atrophy, and lack of macular pigment are ocular features regarded as pathognomonic of Sjogren-Larsson syndrome but were not detected in our patient [6].
