Radiation chorioretinopathy.
  1. A Elmassri

    Abstract

    Three cases of postradiation retinopathy are reported. The findings are analysed. The exudates described by many authors are really infarcts of the choroid lobules. Chorioretinopathy is proposed as a better descriptive term, and three types are suggested. Diagnosis of the condition is important to spare unnecessary enucleation, as the infarcted areas may resemble a recurrence. Predisposing factors are discussed.
