Purpose: To evaluate the visual results following vitreous surgery for Vitreo–Maculopathy in Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP). Methods: We retrospectively reviewed 9 eyes of 8 patients that had undergone pars plana vitrectomy with posterior hyaloid removal and inflammatory epiretinal macular membrane peeling. A full ophthalmological examination, including fundus biomicroscopy, fluorescein angiography and OCT was performed at each visit. Results:VA improved by at least 2 Lines in 5 eyes at the end of the follow up (mean 22.1 months), and OCT assessed the anatomic response to surgery. Conclusions: in our experience vitreous surgery and macular approach improves VA in the cases of vitreo tractional maculopathy in RP
