Abstract
Myelinated retinal nerve fibres have been associated with various conditions such as myopia, amblyopia, retinal vascular anomalies and vitreomacular traction syndrome (1, 2, 3). We present two patients with extensive macular myelination associated with retinal detachment and one of them posed a diagnostic challenge.
