Abstract Details



Purpose:

To report a case of Peripheral exudative haemorrhagic chorioretinopathy (PEHCR ) who presented with subconjunctival haemorrhage along with peripheral haemorrhagic exudative chorioretinopathy

Setting:

Retina clinic of a tertiary eye care Institute

Methods:

An elderly male patient presented with sudden decrease in vision and swelling around the eye. On examination he had chemosis with periphery exudative and haemorrhagic chorioretinopathy. The patient underwent systemic evaluation and was normal. The chemosis progressed to subcojunctival haemorrhage and vision decreased as the subretinal fluid was extending to the macula. The patient underwent anti-VEGF injection in right eye. The disease regressed with treatment. FFA was done after resolution of subretinal haemorrhage and did not show any peripheral lesion s/o CNVM

Results:

The vision improved and patient is under regular follow up and the peripheral haemorrhage regressed over time

Conclusions:

PEHCR can present with associated chemosis and subconjunctival haemorrhage and peripheral exudative and hemorrahagic retinal detachment. Anti-VEGF is useful in resolution in case of progressive lesions.
