BACKGROUND: Although photodynamic therapy (PDT) has become the standard treatment for central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC), its mechanism of action remains unclear. It is assumed that PDT induces short-term choriocapillaris (CC) occlusion and long-term choroidal vascular remodeling. In this paper, we describe the short-term CC changes induced by Half-Dose PDT (HD-PDT) in chronic CSC using optical coherence tomography-angiography (OCTA). METHODS: This is a prospective interventional case series...

Objectives: The operating room is a place of surgical intervention with its accompanying bodily and cognitive strain on the performers. Stress in the operating room may lead to the onset of central serous chorioretinopathy as reported hereby in a retina surgeon and is labeled as operating room central serous chorioretinopathy. Methods: The same operator performed the optical coherence tomography scans on one retina surgeon. A masked observer estimated the maximal height of the subretinal fluid...

Background: Aim of this clinical trial is the evaluation of the effect of intravitreal injection of bevacizumab on acute central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC). Materials and Methods: In a nonrandomized clinical trial, 36 CSC eyes (with <1-month disease history) were examined. Initially, all the patients underwent posterior and anterior segment examinations as well as complete eye examination to evaluate the best spectacle-corrected visual acuity (BSCVA). Then, optical coherence tomography was performed to confirm the diagnosis...

PURPOSE: To describe the features of peripapillary pachychoroid syndrome (PPS), a novel pachychoroid disease spectrum (PDS) entity. METHODS: Medical records of 31 eyes (16 patients) with choroidal thickening associated with intraretinal and/or subretinal fluid in the nasal macula extending from the disk were reviewed (patients with PPS). Choroidal thickness was compared with 2 age-matched cohorts: typical PDS (17 eyes with central serous chorioretinopathy or pachychoroid neovasculopathy) and 19 normal eyes...

Macular edema consists of intra- or subretinal fluid accumulation in the macular region. It occurs during the course of numerous retinal disorders and can cause severe impairment of central vision. Major causes of macular edema include diabetes, branch and central retinal vein occlusion, choroidal neovascularization, posterior uveitis, postoperative inflammation and central serous chorioretinopathy. The healthy retina is maintained in a relatively dehydrated, transparent state compatible with optimal light transmission by multiple active and passive systems...

Purpose: To assess the occurrence of choroidal neovascularization (CNV) secondary to chronic central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR) using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) and correlate these findings with choroidal thickness (CT). Materials and Methods: This retrospective study included 25 consecutive patients (43 eyes), mean age 48.12 ± 7.8 years, diagnosed with persistent CSCR. All patients underwent a complete ophthalmic examination, fluorescein angiography (FA), indocyanine green angiography (ICGA), optical coherence tomography, and OCTA...

Chronic central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR) is a progressive chorioretinopathy with widespread atrophic RPE abnormalities and serous retinal detachments (SRDs) present for 6 months or longer. We report a case of CSCR in a 38-year-old patient with Pigment Dispersion Syndrome (PDS). In the presented case of CSCR, the chronic course of the disease may in part be associated with an underlying generalized degenerative dysfunction of the pigmented cells of the eye on grounds of PDS. We suggest that a chronic course of disease may be suspected in the setting of CSCR with concurrent RPE pathology, such as what is found in PDS...

PURPOSE: To compare the short-term therapeutic efficacy of oral spironolactone treatment with that of half-dose photodynamic therapy (PDT) in patients with nonresolving central serous chorioretinopathy. METHODS: This retrospective, interventional, comparative study included 41 patients with nonresolving central serous chorioretinopathy who exhibited subretinal fluid accumulation for more than 3 months. Of the 41 patients, 18 (18 eyes) received oral spironolactone treatment and 23 (23 eyes) received half-dose PDT...

PURPOSE: To investigate ocular perfusion pressure (OPP) in patients with central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) and pigment epitheliopathy (PE). METHODS: In this retrospective study, we included patients with acute idiopathic unilateral CSC and age- and sex-matched normal controls. The patients with CSC were classified into two groups according to the PE presence on their fellow eyes. We compared OPP among CSC patients with or without PE and normal controls. RESULTS: Among a total of 47 patients with CSC, 21 were classified into the PE group and 26 into the non-PE group...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the efficacy of oral spironolactone in patients with acute central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC). METHODS: This is a prospective, randomised controlled clinical study. Thirty patients with acute CSC were the participants, including 18 patients who were treated with spironolactone (40 mg orally, twice daily) for 2 months in the experimental group and 12 patients who received observation in the control group. Main outcome measures included the proportion of eyes achieving complete resolution of subretinal fluid (SRF), changes in central macular thickness (CMT), the height of SRF (SRFH), best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and subfoveal choroidal thickness (SFCT)...

PURPOSE: To evaluate intravitreal bevacizumab (IVB) injection efficacy for the treatment of chronic, atypical, or recurrent central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC). METHODS: Clinical data from 77 eyes of 71 patients with chronic, atypical, or recurrent CSC treated with IVB were retrospectively analyzed. After initial 6-weekly IVB administration until no subretinal fluid remained at the fovea, additional as-needed IVBs were administered, based on optical coherence tomography findings...

PURPOSE: To assess the ophthalmological characteristics of asymptomatic patients with a renal transplant on chronic low-dose steroids for at least the last 2 years prior to examination. METHODS: Cross-sectional study. All patients underwent an extensive ophthalmological examination. RESULTS: Of the 37 included patients [25 male, 12 female; 59 ± 11 years (range, 38-77 years)] ophthalmological phenotyping revealed abnormalities in 22 patients (59%)...

Patrick Oellers, Dean Eliott
Persistent subretinal fluid (SRF) can impair visual recovery after vitrectomy or scleral buckling surgery for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. Several hypotheses have been proposed for delayed absorption of SRF, but the etiology has not been clearly identified. The authors present a patient with persistent SRF after vitrectomy for retinal detachment who developed central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR) during the postoperative period in the nonoperative eye. Thus, subclinical retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) dysfunction was likely present in the operative eye, and when overloaded with SRF after retinal detachment repair, this manifested as delayed absorption...

Pachychoroid pigment epitheliopathy (PPE) is considered to be a forme fruste of central serous chorioretinopathy. Tamoxifen (Soltamax; Midatech Pharma, Raleigh, NC) has an anti-estrogenic effect on cytoplasmic estrogen receptors. Serum total testosterone, cortisol, and cortisone levels increase during tamoxifen therapy. Tamoxifen may cause hormone disturbance leading to the development of disorders in the pachychoroid spectrum. The authors present two cases of PPE associated with tamoxifen therapy. A 65-year-old woman (Patient 1) and a 52-year-old woman (Patient 2) had a recent history of tamoxifen therapy...

PURPOSE: To describe cases presenting with features of idiopathic macular telangiectasia (MacTel) Type 2 and central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC). METHODS: Databases from four tertiary retina centers were searched for cases copresenting CSC and MacTel Type 2. RESULTS: Five cases were identified (4 men, 1 woman; mean age: 67.2 years). Four patients were referred for chronic or nonresolving CSC, and the diagnosis of MacTel Type 2 was made based on multimodal imaging findings...
