A 36-year-old gentleman with history of central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR) developed full thickness macular hole in the right eye with recurrence of CSCR 2 weeks after blunt trauma to his right eye. Vitrectomy resulted in complete closure of the macular hole and resolution of the subretinal fluid. Post macular hole surgery he developed two episodes of CSCR recurrence with no reopening of the hole. This report hypothesises the possible mechanisms underlying this unusual association and explains how a surgically manipulated macular tissue could endure significant submacular fluid accumulation.
