Purpose: To present a patient with the novel finding of vascular telangiectasis as a cause of intra-schitic haemorrhage, occurring in optic disc pit-associated maculopathy.
Methods: A clinical history was detailed. Clinical examination included visual acuity assessment and slit-lamp microscopy. Fluorescein angiography was performed.
Results: A temporal optic disc pit, macular retinoschisis and a circumscribed detachment of the outer retinal layer and inner leaf holes were noted. A retinal haemorrhage extending into the schitic cavity was present, along with an associated vitreous haemorrhage. Fluorescein angiography showed telangiectatic vessels in association with the haemorrhage.
Conclusion: This is the first reported case of vascular telangiectasis as a cause of intra-schitic haemorrhage occurring in optic disc pit-associated maculopathy.
