(1,2,3) Mechanisms implicated in the pathogenesis of MH include abnormal interactions/adhesions between the posterior hyaloid membrane (i.e., the posterior cortical vitreous) and the macular surface (especially in the central fovea), as well as the forces exerted by anterior-posterior and tangential vitreous traction on the fovea.
Here the anterior hyaloid membrane can provide a foundation for ongrowth of lens epithelial cells.
