PURPOSE: To describe an atypical case of chronic central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR). METHODS: A 58-year-old man with longstanding, bilateral visual impairment was self-referred for a second opinion. RESULTS: Findings by direct ophthalmoscopy, optical coherence tomography, fluorescein angiography, and fundus autofluorescence (FAF) were suggestive of atypical, chronic CSCR. Treatment with oral anti-mineralocorticoids resulted in moderate improvement, and photodynamic therapy (PDT) had minimal effect...

BACKGROUND: Atypical serous chorioretinopathy can present with symptoms similar to those of other pachychoroid diseases; however, a proper differential diagnosis will prevent unnecessary intensive treatments. To this end, we report on the shallowness of anterior chamber and transitory anterior vitreous cells in a patient with atypical severe serous retinal detachment. CASE PRESENTATION: A 42-year-old woman presented with unilateral visual loss accompanied by mild, vague eye pain for 4 days...

Neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a potentially sight-threatening condition. The current standard-of-care treatment regimen is serial intravitreal antivascular endothelial growth factor injections. While these typically have great success, they do carry exceptional treatment burden on the patient, cost burden due to their required frequency of use, and the risk of endophthalmitis, which can be devastating. This case report explores an alternative potential option as a treatment adjunct for neovascular AMD (nAMD), and identifies some of the overlap between nAMD and central serous chorioretionpathy...

Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada (VKH) disease is defined as a severe bilateral, chronic granulomatous panuveitis associated with serous retinal detachments, disk edema, and vitritis, with central nervous system, auditory, and integumentary manifestations. It is an autoimmune inflammatory condition mediated by T cells that target melanocytes in individuals genetically susceptible to the disease. Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease presents clinically in 4 different phases: prodromal, acute inflammatory, chronic, and recurrent, with extraocular manifestations including headache, meningitis, hearing loss, poliosis, and vitiligo...

In recent years, the poorly remarkable goals achieved in terms of patients' important outcomes for ovarian cancer have fueled our interest towards the study of its metabolic roots. Within this research pipeline, we assessed the association between the expression of the glucose transporter GLUT1, as expressed at the tumor tissue level, and circulating pre-surgical levels of fasting glucose in a case series including data from 40 patients with high FIGO stage serous ovarian cancer. Patients who provided data to the current analysis were randomly selected from a larger cohort...

REVIEW

Micropulse laser treatment is an alternative to the conventional continuous-wave laser for the treatment of retinal or macular diseases. In contrast to the conventional laser, the therapeutic effect of the subthreshold micropulse laser is not accompanied by thermal retinal damage. This fact is of particular importance when a treatment near the fovea is required. Micropulse treatment is applied in indications such as central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC), diabetic macular edema (DME), or macular edema due to retinal vein occlusion (RVO)...

Central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR) is a frequent cause of vision deterioration. Often it is associated with type 1 neovascularization under the pigment retinal epithelium (RPE). Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-angiography) enables non-invasive and contrast-free detection of neovessels in any retinal layer, which makes the method appropriate for diagnostics in CSCR. AIM: to investigate OCT-morphometric and angiographic parallels between different CSCR courses. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study included 37 patients with CSCR...

We present a case of a 57-year-old woman who reported bilateral visual impairment since 2 weeks. She had a medical history of congenital, cyanotic heart failure. Funduscopic examination revealed serous retinal detachment on the left side, central subneurosensory detachment on the right side, retinal vessel tortuosity and multiple retinal haemorrhages in the periphery. As blood analysis showed a distinct increase in haemoglobin and haematocrit, hyperviscosity syndrome was suspected to have caused bilateral serous retinal detachment...

32-year-old male with diagnosis of central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR) in both eyes and negative history of administration of any medicine was treated with bilateral focal laser at leakage point, with visual recovery. Recurrence occurred after 2 years in right eye and was treated successfully with acetazolamide. Second recurrence occurred after 1 year. Acetazolamide was restarted, but no improvement was noted. Thorough re-evaluation of the patient revealed a family history of tuberculosis. Ancillary investigations rendered the presumptive diagnosis of tuberculosis, and antituberculosis treatment led to visual recovery with no recurrences...
