In two ODP maculopathy patients (cases 1 and 2), even when PVD was artificially induced, the hyaloid membrane was attached on the epipapillary membrane, which was firmly fixed into the ODP (Figures 1(c)-1(e)).
The hyaloid membrane was attached to not only the optic disc but also the epipapilary membrane in most of these patients.
Our current data suggest that epipapillary membrane is involved in the pathogenesis of some patients with maculopathy associated with cavitary optic disc anomalies as well as posterior hyaloid membrane. PPV with epipapillary membrane removal may be a useful treatment option for patients with this disease complex.
The posterior hyaloid membrane (b, arrowheads) was attached toward the membrane that was present on the ODP (b, arrow).
