Abstract Details



Purpose:

To describe a case with unilateral choroidal detachment associated with carotid-cavernous sinus fistula

Setting:

The study was conducted in a tertiary care centre in the Aegean region of Turkey

Methods:

Observational case report

Results:

Dilatation and tortuosity of the episcleral vessels, shallow anterior chamber and choroidal detachment were detected in the left eye of a 73 year-old woman. Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was 0.5 and 0.1 in the right and the left eye, respectively. Magnetic resonance imaging and digital subtraction angiography (DSA) revealed dilated supraorbital vein and corotid-cavernous fistula.

Conclusions:

Choroidal detachment may occur as the result of decreased venous outflow associated with corotid-cavernous fistula
