Abstract: Retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) tear is an uncommoncomplication of neovascular age-related macular degenera-tion (nAMD) with an increasing risk in cases with pigmentepithelium detachment (PED) and may appear sponta-neously or after intravitreal therapy (IVT). Other uncommoncomplications of IVT related to nAMD are lamellar macularhole (LMH) and full-thickness macular hole (FTMH). Here, wepresent a patient with nAMD that developed a RPE tear asso-ciated with LMH that evolved into a FTMH two months laterafter IVT with ranibizumab (Lucentis®). Long-term follow-upwas registered.
