Central serous chorioretinopathy following pigment epithelium detachment: fluorescein and indocyanine green angiography follow-up
To evaluate the evolution from idiopathic serous pigment epithelium detachment (PED) to central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC).
Fluorescein angiography (FA) and indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) were performed using the digital imaging system Topcon IMAGEnet H 1024.
A leakage point which later became the typical smokestack image of a CSC was found in the upper margin of the persistent PED. Dilation of the choroidal vessels under the detached neuroepithelium was also seen.
Clinical and angiographic evidence about the relation betweeen the two entities can help us to understand CSC as a potential evolution of PED and to continue searching for the common injury of the pigment epithelium which probably is the primary event.
