“…ESM is a rare clinical entity with very few case reports available in the literature. [ 3 4 5 6 7 8 ] Our case probably represents the mildest form of ESM characterized by disruption of RPE and photoreceptor layer and showing spontaneous resolution. However, the most commonly reported form of ESM is characterized by defect in RPE and outer retinal layers progressing to form outer lamellar hole with intact internal limiting membrane (ILM) over the bare RPE, with or without associated cystic changes noted on OCT.…”
