Purpose: To report the closure of a recalcitrant macular hole (MH) following the development of choroidal neovascularization. Methods: A 67-year-old female patient in this case report was diagnosed with a MH and operated twice, but anatomical closure of MH could not be achieved. The patient was followed up without further treatment, as she rejected any additional procedure. Results: Six months later, a lesion consistent with choroidal neovascularization appeared in the central macula, and the recalcitrant MH closed spontaneously. The MH defect remained closed in the following years. Conclusion: Besides being a new example of the presence of choroidal neovascularization after MH surgery, the most important aspect of this case report is to report the closure of a recalcitrant MH following the development of choroidal neovascularization.
