While retinal detachment is not rarely associated with posterior staphyloma and macular hole, very few cases of retinal detachment with equatorial scleral staphyloma are reported until recentily. In the course of retinal detachment surgery, an equatorial staphyloma is found unexpectedly and makes surgical treatment difficult. We experienced a 70 year old woman who had retinal detachment due to a hole at the 1 o'clock equator. During the retinal detachment surgery, a large equatorial staphyloma was noted right over the retinal hole. Scleral surface buckling procedure and graft using the preserved human sclera were performed. After the follow up period of 6 months, retina was still reattached.
Key Words: Equatorial scleral staphyloma;Retinal detachment
