To report a case of spontaneous resolution of a serous macular detachment associated with an optic disc pit, leading to significant visual improvement. A 17 years old male presented to the outpatient department with chief complaints of blurring of vision in the left eye for 13 days, with some improvement in last 3 days. The patient had consulted elsewhere 10 days back and was noted to have a visual acuity of 6/60 in the left eye and was diagnosed to have an Optic disc pit with serous retinal detachment involving the macula. He was advised pars plana vitrectomy with gas tamponade but he preferred to wait for some time. The patient presented to us with improvement of the visual acuity to 6/9 in the left eye. Detailed fundus examination showed a large disc with a pit at the temporal disc margin with serous detachment seen temporal to the fovea. The patient was advised against any intervention and asked for regular follow up. We report a exhibited spontaneous regression of serous macular detachment in a case of optic disc pit within 13 days with significant improvement in visual acuity in a 17 year old patient.
