Lattice degeneration is an area of retinal thinning that is associated with atrophic holes in 25% of cases, (7) and potentially with increased risk of retinal detachment (RD) as the posterior vitreous pulls on the borders of the atrophic, thinned retina.
lattice degeneration is common in females about 30%
Not infrequently, areas of lattice degeneration harbour small atrophic retinal holes.
If the patient has areas of abnormal vitreo-retinal adhesion, or abnormally thin retina, both of which co-exist in the common vitreo-retinal condition of lattice degeneration, then the traction exerted on these areas as the vitreous separation progresses may result in retinal tear formation.
