    Description
    A 32-year-old man, who has presented for 02 months, a macular hematoma secondary to a Valsalva maneuver. He benefited from an attempt to open the hematoma with a Yag laser, but to no avail. We operated on and performed a 23G vitrectomy with posterior vitreous detachment, and discovered an epiretinal membrane which separated the hematoma from the posterior hyaloid. After removal of this membrane and aspiration of red blood cells and fibrin, the macula regained a normal appearance with good functional recovery.
