Does the vitreous play a role in macular X-linked retinoschisis? case report.

Purpose: Macular x-linked retinoschisis has no standard treatment yet. The case presented in this report helps to understand the role of vitreous in XLRS. Methods: Multimodal exams were performed after pars plana vitrectomy in a male, 39 years old with macular x-linked retinoschisis. We evaluated the macular schisis behavior, that changed after vitreous traction withdrawal by PPV. Results: The surgical result obtained in the right eye, suggests a possible role of vitreoretinal traction in XLRS, but more studies should be performed to achieve a better understanding of the role of vitreous in X-linked macular retinoschisis.
