A 35-year-old hypertensive male, follow-up case of left eye macular branch retinal vein occlusion (RVO), presented with progressive diminution of vision in the same eye for 6-months. Fundus and ancillary imaging [Figure 1]a, [Figure 1]b, [Figure 1]c showed massive premacular fibrosis, subretinal exudation and surface neovascularization mimicking “Sunny-side up egg with red-sauce” appearance.
|Figure 1: Fundus photograph (a) showing disc-collateral, tortuous vesssels and disciform epiretinal fibrosis at macula with large surface neovascular fronds simulating a peculiar “Sunny-side up egg with red-sauce” appearance. Red-free image (b) clearly delineated the superficial lesion and optical coherence tomography (c) showed epiretinal hyperreflective structure with vitreomacular adhesion and subfoveal clump of hard-exudates|

Although secondary epiretinal fibrosis is more common following surgery, less common non-surgical causes include blunt ocular trauma, uveitis and RVO.,, We presume organization of blood from the new vessels along with proliferation, fibrous metaplasia and contraction of residual hyalocytes beneath the posterior hyaloid face contributed to this unique presentation in this case.
