To report 2 cases of macular hole in patients with Behçet’s uveitis, and the results of surgical treatment.


We report 2 young patients, diagnosed with Behçet’s uveitis, who developed a macular hole. Review of 2 patients’ charts, fluorescein angiography, optical coherence tomography, and results of surgical treatment.

Effectiveness / Safety:

The two patients were treated by vitrectomy with internal limiting membrane peeling and gas tamponade. The macular hole was closed in 1 patient with improvement of visual acuity, and persisted in the second patient. Macular hole is a rare complication of Behçet’s uveitis that can lead to serious visual impairment. Early diagnosis and aggressive treatment might prevent such severe complication.
