|Abstract:||PURPOSE: To report a case of intraretinal silicone oil incorporation after anatomically successful detachment surgery. METHODS: Retrospective case report. RESULTS: We show a sequence of optical coherence tomography images documenting silicone oil incorporation from the vitreous cavity over a 3-months period. This resulted in foveal cystic spaces filled with a hyperreflective material and best-corrected visual acuity of 30/200. CONCLUSION: Intraretinal incorporation of silicone oil is rare and mainly occurs via subretinal access in cases with chronically detached retina. However, other mechanisms are possible. Here, we document a case of intraretinal silicone oil incorporation from the vitreous cavity after anatomically successful detachment surgery.|
