Abstract Details



Purpose:

Chronic central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) has remained a challenge to retina specialists due to unsatisfactory functional and anatomical outcomes after have been treated with classic procedures such as laser photocoagulation or photodynamic therapy.

Setting:

Hospital Universitario de Fuenlabrada

Methods:

In this report, we present 4 cases of chronic CSC, succesfully treated with 50 mg of daily oral eplerenone. The treatment lasted between 3 and 6 months.

Results:

In all cases, there was an anatomical resolution. Visual acuity (VA) improved in 2 of 4 cases. When VA remained the same despite anatomical improvement in other 2 cases. We consider that chronic damage of outer retinal layers may have played a role in latter 2 cases.

Conclusions:

In this short consecutive case series, we remark the safety and efficacy of oral eplerenone as a treatment for chronic CSC.
