Abstract. Purpose:To report a case of blunt ocular trauma who manifested serous retinal detachment in the macula. Case:A 38-year-old male suffered blunt trauma in the left eye while playing rugby. He was seen by us 3 days later for central scotoma in the left eye. Findings:Corrected visual acuity was 1.5 right and 1.0 left. Both eyes were myopic by about −9 diopters. The left macula showed serous retinal detachment of one disc diameter across. Optical coherence tomography supported this finding. Fluorescein angiography showed window defect and mild dye leakage. Indocyanine green angiography showed no changes in permeability. Optical coherence tomography showed choroidal rupture with lesions in the retinal pigment epithelium. Retinal detachment resolved 3 months later. There has been no recurrence until present. Conclusion:Serous retinal detachment in the present case appears to be secondary to choroidal rupture. Due attention is needed for eventual choroidal neovascularization.
