Figure 5: Evolution of the posterior precortical vitreous pocket (PPVP) during childhood. (A) In a 3-year-old child, the posterior precortical vitreous pocket (P) is the narrow space in front of the fovea. (B) In a 6-year-old child, the PPVP (P) is enlarged but smaller than in the adult. The PPVP and Cloquet's canal (denoted “C”) appears to be independent. (C) In an 8- year-old, the PPVP is similar to the adult PPVP in size and shape. The connecting channel (arrow) is collapsed in the image. (D) The connecting channel (arrow) is opened. C = Cloquet's canal; P = posterior precortical vitreous pocket.
