PurposeTo describe an atypical case of chronic central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR).
MethodsA 58-year-old man with longstanding, bilateral visual impairment was self-referred for a second opinion.
ResultsFindings 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.
ConclusionChronic CSCR may lack cardinal features of CSCR. Once retinal degenerative changes ensue, current treatments may not be effective in improving anatomical and visual outcomes in patients with chronic CSCR.
