Optic disc pit (ODP) is a rare congenital abnormality described under congenital cavitary anomalies of the optic disc which may be accompanied by serous macular detachment with the development of schisis leading to gradual loss of vision. Several invasive and non-invasive methods have been identified in literature with several different modifications including laser photocoagulation, intravitreal gas injection and pars plana vitrectomy with internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling. The report describes a 42 year old man with a unilateral optic disc pit consistent with serous macular detachment in the left eye which was successfully treated with vitrectomy, ILM peeling and stuffing the autologous free flap into the pit.
