  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We observed massive unilateral vitreous hemorrhage in 8 eyes with familial exudative vitreo-retinopathy, FEVR. Six cases, 75%, were aged 30 years or less. Causes of hemorrhage were identified either by vitrectomy 3 eyes or after spontaneous resorption 5 eyes. Hemorrhage was caused by retinal breaks 2 eyes, retinal neovascularization 3 eyes, retinoschisis 2 eyes or posterior vitreous detachment 1 eye. The lesions were invariably located in the temporal periphery along the border of retinal avascular zone. Retinal detachment followed vitreous hemorrhage in 4 eyes. Above findings show that early vitrectomy is indicated in unilateral massive vitreous hemorrhage in eyes with FEVR.
