    Description
    Intraoperative fundus picture of right eye of a 18-year-old boy with complaints of DOV for the past 2 months. There were 12 intravitreal cysts in total with vitritis sclerosis retinal vessels and TRD. To note here, the largest cyst has a flimsy wall and no scolex (possibly ruptured) and the rest of the smaller cysts have a scolex and a taut wall.
