Abstract

Retinal and choroidal manifestations/toxicity may be seen in patients exposed to a variety of systemic medications. Toxicity may manifest itself via a variety of means, including disruption of the retina and retinal pigment epithelium, vascular damage, cystoid macular edema, retinal folds, crystalline retinopathy, uveitis, and subjective visual changes (without objective findings). Examples of all of these forms of toxicity will be presented. With a high index of suspicion, the correct diagnosis can almost always be established.
