Purpose: To report a case of inner retinal cleavages that disappeared after idiopathic epiretinal membranes were removed. Methods: A 72-year-old woman with epiretinal membranes and inner retinal cleavages in her nonmyopic eye underwent pars plana vitrectomy and epiretinal membrane removal. Fundus examination and optical coherence tomography were performed before and after surgery. Results: Inner retinal cleavages disappeared after epiretinal membranes were removed. Conclusion: We postulate that the inner retinal cleavages are associated with tangential retinal tractions.
