Purpose: To report a treatment of rhegmatogenous retinal detachments in adult with retinopathy of prematurity. Methods: We present a case of rhegmatogenous retinal detachments in a 21-year-old female with retinopathy of prematurity. The patient had history of premature birth and treatment of ROP. After a full ophthalmic examination, scleral buckling was taken to treat the rhegmatogenous retinal detachments Results: The fundus examination showed retinal folds in both eyes, and the retinal vessels were pulled straight, the retina of the left eye was removed from 1 to 8 o'clock, and the peripheral hole was at 5 o’clock. The silicone tape was pressed from the 4 to 6 o'clock pad at the anterior equatorial hole. Intraoperative combined retinal drainage. Postoperative follow-up observation of subretinal fluid absorption, and the retinal are flat. Conclusion: In patients with a history of premature birth, features of fundus examinations do not correlate with the occurrence of a retinal detachment. Repair of detachment in such a patient is more likely to require multiple procedures. Physicians should consider widespread relief of vitreoretinal traction for detachment in any patient with a history of premature birth.
