We report a rare case of subfoveal intrachoroidal cavitation secondary to full-thickness macular hole in case of retinitis pigmentosa. Intrachoroidal cavitation was typically described in myopic eyes in peripapillary region and North Carolina macular dystrophy previously. Many authors described hypothesis regarding its pathogenesis but conclusive evidence is not available. We are reporting subfoveal intrachoroidal cavitation associated with retinitis pigmentosa and myopia.
