Quizzical optical coherence tomography

      We often question our diagnoses, but how often does your diagnosis question you? A patient was referred for surgical management of an epiretinal membrane. During the encounter, she asked many intelligent questions. Amazingly, the optical coherence tomography of her macula seemed to reflect her quizzical nature and was found to have a question (mark) of its own! (Fig. 1)
