Abstract

Conventional treatment of idiopathic central serous chorioretinopathy (ICSC) consists of argon laser, photodynamic therapy, or observation. However, in cases of atypical bullous ICSC with exudative detachment preventing any laser therapy, a surgical approach with external drainage of fluid has been performed. We present a case of ICSC with persistent macula involving exudative retinal detachment without evidence of uveitis that responded favorably to internal drainage by vitrectomy along with a scleral buckle placement. Our case, treated with internal drainage, also demonstrated successful long-term reattachment of the serous retinal detachment without any additional complications from the surgery.
