- Appears in
- lattice lesion, lattice degeneration, retinal hole, retinal detachment
- Lattice lesion that was originally just a reddish crater as in slide pair 35 in a girl 14 years of age. By the time she was 21, seven years later, it had changed to this appearance, more whitish and with a tiny hole in the right end. This hole has led to a small subclinical retinal detachment which extends beyond the lattice lesion to the margin of the yellow zone. It has remained exactly like this for more than 21 years.
