Abstract:

ABSTRACT.Purpose:

To evaluate the evolution from idiopathic serous pigment epithelium detachment (PED) to central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC).

Methods:

Fluorescein angiography (FA) and indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) were performed using the digital imaging system Topcon IMAGEnet H 1024.

Results:

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.

Conclusions:

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.
