Abstract

It is known that the retinal detachments (RDs) associated with a morning glory disc anomaly (MGDA) usually appear from around the disc anomaly and complications by peripheral fibrovascular proliferation and tractional RD are very rare. We report our findings in an eye with MGDA that had a tractional RD, massive exudation from a peripheral temporal fibrovascular proliferation and vasculatures stretched by this proliferation and by a contraction of the hyaloidal membrane. The RD was successfully treated by vitrectomy and encircling buckling surgery.
