    Spontaneous resolution of foveal cysts associated with X-linked retinoschisis as observed by optical coherence tomography
    X-linked retinoschisis (XLRS) is an inherited disorder characterized by splitting of the retinal layer. There are no known effective therapeutic interventions for patients with XLRS. In recent years, however, the use of carbonic anhydrase inhibitors and vitrectomy have been reported to be effective in reducing foveal retinoschisis. We encountered a case of XLRS in which spontaneous regression was observed by means of optical coherence tomography (OCT). A 22-year-old male presented with a chief complaint of decreased visual acuity that had been present since childhood. The best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was 20/125, and refractive error was 2 D myopia OU ...
