  • Look Inside

 A 73-year-old female presented with macular hole retinal detachment in her left eye. She received phacoemulsification-aspiration,intraocular lens implantation,vitrectomy,intraocular photocoagulation,fluid-gas exchange using sulfur fluoride,and injection of triamcinolone acetonide. The next day of surgery,a disc-shaped white mass of 6mm in diameter was present posterior to the cornea. This mass was presumed to be triamcinolone. It disappeared 5 days after surgery. The retina remained reattached with no problem about the cornea during 6months after surgery. This case illustrates that due attention is necessary to the cornea after triamcinolone-assisted vitreous surgery.
