Objective. - To describe nine cases of macular holes with atypical presentations and propose possible mechanistic explanations. Setting. - The steps leading to typical idiopathic macular hole formation have recently been defined. Patients. - Patients included seven with previous retinal detachment and subsequent macular hole formation and two with macular hole formation after vitrectomy for epiretinal membrane removal. Conclusions. - The occurrence of these cases may seem to contradict reported pathogenesis schemes, but they are explainable within reported grading schemes.
