To describe two cases of Behçet's retinitis lesions in the macula causing sloughing of retinal tissue forming a full-thickness macular hole. This was a case series study. Case 1 was a 26-year-old presented, known case of Behçet's disease, presented with a large area of retinitis involving the center of the macula with overlying vitritis. One day after the initiation of treatment, vitritis improved, but the retinitis patch sloughed and created a full-thickness macular hole. Case 2 was a 31-year-old male, known case of Behçet's uveitis, who presented vitritis and multiple retinitis patches involving the macula of the left eye. Two weeks after infliximab infusion, the inflammation resolved with medical management, however, the retinitis patch was complicated by a full-thickness macular hole with an inferior rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. Retinitis at the macula can be complicated by a full-thickness macular hole.
