Spontaneous separation of epiretinal membrane secondary to branch retinal vein occlusion after a series of intravitreal injection

A rare case with developing and spontaneous separation of Epiretinal Membrane (ERM) during the treatment of Branch Retinal Vein Occlusion (BRVO) and its clinical progression was presented. A 63-year-old man underwent a series of Intravitreal (IV) injections for treatment of macular edema secondary to BRVO. ERM developed after the Posterior Vitreous Detachment (PVD) during treatment with IV anti-Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (anti-VEGF) injections. After the total of 23 Anti VEGF injections cystoid, ME, and ERM were persisted. Then subsequently, the ERM separate spontaneously from the inner retinal surface following the consecutive Intravitreal Dexamethasone implantations. Keywords: Epiretinal membrane, Posterior vitreous detachment, Branch retinal vein occlusion, Antivascular endothelial growth factor, Dexamethasone implantation.
