This case report describes an unusual course of an impending macular hole (MH) throughout a 72-month follow-up period. A 53-year-old female presented with impending MH associated with epiretinal proliferation (EP) which showed unusual progress including full thickness MH, spontaneous closure, reopening as lamellar MH, and full anatomical closure with EP tissue. After cataract surgery, cystoid spaces occurred involving both EP tissue and neuroretina. Due to full recovery following a single dose of aflibercept, the source of the cystoid spaces was thought to be associated with postoperative inflammation leading to pseudophakic macular edema involving not only but also EP tissue.
