  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We evaluated the ego states of 34 cases of central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) using an egogram check list. All were males comprising 23 non-recurrent cases and 11 recurrent ones. The average egogram showed a signifcantly higher incidence of type AC (adapted child) in the recurrent cases (p < 0.01). Cases were assigned to dominant AC type when the AC score was 5 points or higher or when the AC score was higher than FC (free child) score. Dominant AC type was found in 6 non-recurrent cases (26%) and in 9 recurrent ones (82%). The difference was significant (p < 0.01). The findings show that patients with recurrent CSC tend to be in a more distorted ego state than those with non-recurrent CSC.
