Cryotherapy of the peripheral avascular retina in selected cases of retinopathy of prematurity has been shown to reduce the incidence of posterior retinal detachment, retinal fold involving the macula, and retrolental tissue. Although exudative retinal detachments have been described after cryotherapy during scleral buckling procedures, to our knowledge, this observation has not been reported after cryotherapy in retinopathy of prematurity. We describe such a case.
