Purpose:

To report the anatomic location of bilateral dome-shaped posterior pole hemorrhages in a patient with Terson syndrome.

Methods:

Case report. We performed bilateral vitrectomy for vitreous hemorrhage in a patient with Terson syndrome. After removal of vitreous hemorrhage, the tissue overlying a large discrete hemorrhage in the posterior pole was removed.

Results:

The discrete dome-shaped hemorrhage in the posterior pole was confined to the retina anteriorly by the internal limiting membrane.

Conclusion:

Large dome-shaped retinal hemorrhages with Terson syndrome can be located beneath the internal limiting membrane of the retina.
