Abstract in Portuguese: Fosseta do nervo óptico é uma anomalia congênita do nervo óptico frequentemente associada com descolamento macular. Se não tratado o prognostico visual é ruim. O tratamento da fosseta do nervo óptico é controverso e inclui laser na borda do nervo óptico, vitrectomia com ou sem remoção da hialoide posterior e tamponamento com gás. Relatamos o caso de uma jovem de 19 anos com descolamento macular de longa data, associado a fosseta do nervo óptico que foi submetida à cirurgia de vitrectomia com remoção
Abstract: Optic disc pit is a congenital anomaly of the optic nerve frequently associated with macula detachment. It has a poor visual prognosis if left untreated. The treatment of the optic disc remains controversial and includes the use of laser along the edge of the optic nerve, vitrectomy with gas tamponade with or without removal of posterior hyaloid. We report a case of a 19-year-old female with a longstanding macula detachment due to optic disc pit who was treated with vitrectomy with removal of posterior hyaloid, gas tamponade, and laser. Despite longstanding macular detachment the final visual acuity was 20/25.
