A 16-year-old male underwent 25 guage vitrectomy for nonresolving premacular hemorrhage due to Terson syndrome. After clearing vitreous hemorrhage, a premacular cavity was noticed with altered blood only at its superior and inferior edge. Brilliant blue assisted internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling was done and residual blood was aspirated. At 4 weeks, fundus showed two bands at the site of the edge of the previous premacular cavity [Figure 1]a. Autofluorescence showed these bands as hypoautofluorescent with hyperautofluorescent borders [Figure 1]b. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) showed attenuation of the ellipsoid zone corresponding to the area of these dark bands [Figure 1]c.
