Origin of Subretinal Fluid in Optic Disc Pit Maculopathy: Beta-2 Transferrin Analysis

Ronald C. Gentile, MD (New York, NY), Alfonso Ponce, MD (New York, NY) SYNOPSIS A case of an optic disc pit associated maculopathy. 25-gauge vitrectomy with ICG assisted ILM peeling and SRF drainage was performed. ILM adjacent to the pit was removed and the SRF was analyzed. ß-2 trans-ferrin levels where not detected and does not support the CSF theory of SRF origin.   ...
