Abstract: We report two cases of significantly large choroidal holes following penetrating trauma that led to suprachoroidal migration of internal tamponading agents during repair of retinal detachments with proliferative vitreoretinopathy secondary to penetrating trauma. In the first case, choroidal hole was a direct result of the injury and was identified immediately after vitreoretinal surgery which was done for traumatic retinal detachment with hemorrhagic choroidal detachment. In the second case, the hole occurred over a period of several months after the repair of traumatic retinal detachment with silicone oil tamponade. This was attributed to progressive fibrosis exerting traction on the bare choroid/retinal pigment epithelium. Choroidal hole significant enough to cause suprachoroidal migration of internal tamponading agents is a very rare complication seen in eyes with posttraumatic retinal detachment with proliferative vitreoretinopathy.
