Central serous chorioretinopathy complicating systemic corticosteroid treatment.
  1. M Wakakura and
  2. S Ishikawa


    Central serous chorioretinopathy developed in 2 cases of retrobulbar neuritis during systemic treatment with corticosteroids. Fluorescein angiography confirmed leakage surrounded by central serous detachment of the retina. In one case the central serous chorioretinopathy recurred 3 times during 3 separate courses of treatment. Spontaneous recovery accompanied a reduction in steroid treatment to a low level. It is suggested that high dosage corticosteroids may damage the posterior blood-ocular barrier.
