Purpose :

To show the process of epiretinal membrane biopsy analysis.


Five cases of different retinal disease that have epiretinal membrane formation, during pars plana vitreoctomy membrane peeled and placed in a tube with 10% formalin then sent to histopathology laboratory for preparation and analysis.


It’s not easy to work with epiretinal membrane because it’s very tiny fragments measuring about 0.2-0.3 cm and all of these fragments were stained with Eosin so as not to be not lost during the preparation and used for microscopic examination. Useful information was obtained about retinal pathology.
