CASE REPORT: A 70-years-old woman presented with a one week history of progressive loss of vision in the right eye (RE) diagnosed as retinal detachment from 7 to 1 o' clock with retinal break at the 10.30 o' clock associated. Gadolinium enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of the brain and orbits with fat suppression showed a convexity meningioma. Scleral buckling with a segmental sponge, subretinal fluid drainage and cryopexy were performed with detachment repair. CONCLUSION: In our patient with retinal detachment and convexity meningioma without significant neurological symptoms, performing ocular surgery and close follow up care seemed to be the optimal treatment option.

Abstract

CASE REPORT: A 70-years-old woman presented with a one week history of progressive loss of vision in the right eye (RE) diagnosed as retinal detachment from 7 to 1 o' clock with retinal break at the 10.30 o' clock associated. Gadolinium enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of the brain and orbits with fat suppression showed a convexity meningioma. Scleral buckling with a segmental sponge, subretinal fluid drainage and cryopexy were performed with detachment repair. CONCLUSION: In our patient with retinal detachment and convexity meningioma without significant neurological symptoms, performing ocular surgery and close follow up care seemed to be the optimal treatment option.
