    lattice degeneration, atrophic retinal hole, retinal detachment, posterior vitreous detachment
    Lattice degeneration in a 42-year-old man which has produced four atrophic holes in a linear arrangement surrounded by a subclinical retinal detachment of unknown duration. By age 63, 21 years later, a posterior vitreous detachment was diagnosed in this eye, which was not present four years earlier. Nevertheless, the appearance seen here has remained exactly the same for 30 years, more than eight years with a concurrent PVD.
