To report a case of delayed sealing of full-thickness macular hole associated with diabetic retinopathy after vitrectomy with silicone oil tamponade. CASE SUMMARY: A 63-year-old woman visited our clinic complaining of decreased visual acuity in her left eye. Fundoscopy showed a full-thickness macular hole with vitreomacular traction in the left eye and bilateral proliferative diabetic retinopathy. The patient underwent uncomplicated phacoemulsification and pars plana vitrectomy with silicone oil tamponade because her vision in the contralateral eye was only light perception. She was unable to maintain a prone position postoperatively due to anterior chamber hyphema. At 1.5 months after surgery, vitreomacular traction was removed but the hole was not sealed as observed on optical coherence tomography. Approximately 3 months after vitrectomy, the macular hole was sealed with minimal subfoveal fluid. At 6 months after vitrectomy, the macular hole was closed completely with no subfoveal fluid.
Key Words: Delayed sealing;Macular hole;Silicone oil tamponade
