 Case Description



A 33-year-old female presented with left eye diminution of vision for the past 2 months. Best-corrected visual acuity was 20/20, N6 in the right eye and 20/30, N12 in the left eye. Bilateral anterior-segment examination was unremarkable. Right eye fundus showed incomplete, inferior uveal coloboma. Left eye fundus showed flame-shaped retinal hemorrhages at the posterior pole along with retinal thickening, optic disc pit, and inferior uveal coloboma [Figure 1]. Ocular coherence tomography passing through the macula confirmed the macular edema. A diagnosis of left-eye macular tributary vein occlusion, optic disc pit, and both-eye uveal coloboma was made. The patient was injected intravitreal bevacizumab in the left eye, and after 1 month, the edema had resolved with the vision improving to 20/20, N6.{Figure 1}

Optic disc pit with coloboma[1] has been reported prior, however, an occurrence of a retinal vein occlusion in association with the two conditions has never been reported. Our case shows the presence of a macular tributary vein occlusion with macular edema in a case of optic disc pit with uveal coloboma. The vein occlusion may not be related to optic disc pit and uveal coloboma.
