Purpose: To summarize all reported cases of Henle fiber layer (HFL) hemorrhage in the absence of subretinal neovascularization (SRNV) in patients with macular telangiectasia type 2 (MacTel2) and to propose a mechanism for the right sided predominance of this unique presentation.
Design: Perspective METHODS: Collection, review, and analysis of all cases in the literature and in the authors' databases of HFL hemorrhage in MacTel2, including analysis of baseline and follow up multimodal retinal imaging findings of selected cases. Elucidation of the complex interplay of systemic venous pressure with the deep retinal capillary plexus and hypothesis regarding the right-sided predilection of HFL hemorrhage complicating MacTel2.
