  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Indocyanine green (ICG) angiography was performed in 59 eyes with various types of serous retinal detachment. The series comprised central serous chorioretinopathy 31 eyes, bullous retinal detach-ment 12, Harada's disease 14 and toxemia of pregnancy 2. All the eyes showed dye leakage through the retinal pigment epithelium by fluorescein angiography. ICG angiography showed essentially similar findings regarding dye leakage and pooling as seen by fluorescein. As a unique feature, ICG angiography showed leakage from choroidal vessels in Harada's disease and toxemia of pregnancy. Also, choroidal tissue staining by ICG was present in central serous chorioretinopathy and bullous retinal detachment. The findings seemed to suggest that choroidal vascular hyperpermeability plays a causative role in damage to retinal pigment epithelium with resultant accumulation of subretinal fluid.
