Abstract. Purpose:To report vitreous surgery for epiretinal membrane in a case of familial exudative vitreoretinopathy(FEVR). Case:A 36-year-old female presented with impaired vision in the left eye. Her right eye had become blind due to falciform retinal detachment during infancy. Her left eye had been diagnosed with FEVR with epiretinal membrane before. Her father had a history of retinal detachment. Finding:Corrected visual acuity was no light perception right and 0.5 left. The left eye had myopia of -9 diopters. The right eye was phthisic. The left eye showed dragged disc, fundus findings compatible with FEVR, and epiretinal membrane temporal to the macula. The left visual acuity decreased to 0.15 15 months later due to progression of epiretinal membrane. The left eye was treated by vitrectomy and peeling of epiretinal membrane. She has been doing well for 2 years until present with visual acuity maintained at 0.4. Conclusion:Vitrectomy and membrane peeling was effective for progressive epiretinal membrane in a case of FEVR.
