Abstract:  Other than innocuous posterior vitreous detachment (PVD), anomalous PVD indicates partial adhesion of posterior vitreous cortex to retina inner limiting membrane, or remnants of posterior vitreous cortex on the surface of inner limiting membrane. Anomalous PVD can result in vitreoschisis, retinal breaks, etc. The residual vitreous cortex could be fibrous with few cells or cell-rich, which are highly associated with the pathogeneses of full-thickness macular hole, lamellar macular hole, pseudomacular hole and epimacular membrane.

Key words:  anomalous posterior vitreous detachment, vitreoschisis, macular hole, pseudomacular hole, epimacular membrane
