Abstract
Case report

The case involves a 35-year-old man, with a history of retinitis pigmentosa, who presented with a bilateral cystoid macular edema associated with bilateral epiretinal membrane, which was resistant to treatment with oral acetazolamide and intravitreal bevacizumab. The treatment with oral eplerenone was able to improve the visual acuity and macular thickness of this patient.

Discussion

A variety of treatments have been proposed for the management of cystoid macular edema, associated with retinitis pigmentosa, with variable results. The treatment with oral eplerenone might be a good option for the control of this condition.
