A 47-year-old woman known to have retinitis pigmentosa (RP) developed macular holes in each eye. Examination and fluorescein angiography demonstrated a partial thickness macular hole in the right eye and a full thickness one in the left eye. It was concluded that macular hole formation can occur in patients with RP, but the exact cause of macular hole development in these patients is uncertain.
