A 58-year-old female presented with macular telangiectasia (MacTel) type 2 with proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) and also showed vitreomacular traction (VMT) with epiretinal neovascularization (ERN) in both the eyes. Post-vitrectomy with anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) injection in the right eye, there was complete resolution of previously noted ERN, probably due to release of VMT, making this a compelling case of traction as one of the pathophysiology of ERN in MacTel type 2 in our case.
