Macular holes can develop as result of intraocular inflammatory disease, trauma, or vitreous detachment, among other reasons. Presently described is case of full-thickness macular hole (FTMH) repair after successful surgery for traumatic submacular hemorrhage. FTMH may have developed due to injection of small air bubble into the subretinal space during surgery to remove subretinal hemorrhage. FTMH was successfully treated with pars plana vitrectomy and internal limiting membrane (ILM) removal using gas tamponade, as in cases of traumatic/idiopathic macular hole.

Keywords: Pars plana vitrectomy, subretinal hemorrhage, traumatic macular hole.
