Figure 1: bilateral macular hole, whitish speckled with black dots on the periphery
Figure 2: Optical coherence tomography (OCT) showing cystoid macular oedema and thinning of the outer nuclear ellipsoid (disappeared in the periphery).
Figure 3: The vessels and the epiretinal membrane were normal.
Laboratory findings were as follows: WCC:6.800/mm, neutrophils:61, lymphocyts:24, monocytes:10, eosinophils :5 and sedimentation rate:36mm/h. Serology tests were also performed: VDRL: 0.234 (<0.9),TPH<1/80, CEA:3.17(<5ng/ml) and IDRT:10mm (positive).
