The development and spontaneous resolution of a full-thickness macular hole in bartonella henselae neuroretinitis in a 12-year-old boy.

Abstract

PURPOSE:

To describe an unusual case of Bartonella henselae neuroretinitis complicated by macular hole (MH) development.

OBSERVATIONS:

A full-thickness macular hole developed in a 12-year-old boy in association with serology-confirmed Bartonella henselae neuroretinitis. Following a period of observation, the MH closed without intervention.

CONCLUSION AND IMPORTANCE:

MH may occur as a complication of neuroretinitis secondary to Cat-Scratch Disease.
