  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We observed recurrent serous detachment of the central retina with progressive atrophy of the retinal pigment epithelium in three males aged 42, 49 and 55 years each. These patients showed following features in common. Fluorescein angiography showed diffuse leakage of dye at the level of retinal pigment epithelium. Indocyanine green angiography showed delayed circulation in the choroid during the initial phase and areas of hypo- and hyperfluorescence in the later phase. Static perimetry showed increased threshold in affected retinal areas. Visual acuity was affected when the choroidal lesion involved the fovea. Findings were consistently absent suggesting age-related macular degeneration as choroidal neovascularization or multiple drusen. The fellow eyes were normal throughout the period of observation.
