Abstract 

• Purpose: To determine the effectiveness of autologous platelets in repair of optic disc pit associated with persistent macular detachment. • Patient: We report on a 44-year-old woman with optic disc pit associated with persistent macular detachment. The patient underwent an uneventful pars plana vitrectomy with autologous platelets injected over the optic disc pit. Good anatomical and functional results were obtained. • Conclusion: This surgical approach may be a valuable adjunct to the surgical management of optic disc pit associated with persistent macular detachment.
