Purpose: To describe a case of ocular decompression syndrome in a patient after trabeculectomy with mitomycin C for neovascular glaucoma. Results: Diffuse retinal hemorrhages developed in the posterior pole of a patient with neovascular glaucoma after he underwent trabeculectomy with mitomycin C. The hemorrhages persisted for less than 9 months. Conclusions: Acute decompression of the eye in patients with high intraocular pressure can lead to the development of posterior pole hemorrhages. The course of this rare syndrome is relatively benign.
