A Pediatric Vitreous Hemorrhage

3: 45, Karim Hammamji, MD, FRCSC, DipABO


Case of an 11-year-old boy, who presented with counting fingers vision and an afferent pupillary defect OS. He had recently been under chemotherapy for acute leukemia. We had to perform a vitrectomy to rule out or confirm a leukemic relapse, since his bone marrow biopsy was inconclusive. During vitrectomy, we noted a large macular lesion that looked like hemorrhage versus infiltration. We decided to peel the ILM, and evacuated large clumps of sub-ILM tissue/heme. His vision improved to 20/20.
