    Vitreous base avulsion (or vitreous band) in a case of suspected neurofibromatosis. Only two cases of which have been reported in confirmed cases of neurofibromatosis. Vitreous base avulsions are linear vitreous opacities overlapping the peripheral retina, often resulting in a "bucket-handle" appearance.
