Abstract Details



Purpose:

To present a case of a 32 year old man, a miner, suffering from a visual impairment for a couple of months.

Setting:

Knowledge of the causes of central serous retinopathy is still insufficient.

Methods:

Based on fundus examination, optical coherence tomography and fluoresceine angiography, chronic central serous retinopathy was diagnosed.

Results:

After micropulse laser treatment, resolution of a subretinal fluid and improvement of a visual acuity was achieved. The recurrence of a disease was observed strictly after re-episodes of a snuff inhale. The subretinal fluid resolved spontaneously when the patient stopped inhaling the snuff and repetition of micropulse laser treatment was no needed.

Conclusions:

It seems that a snuff inahale may be one of a risk factors for an appearance or recurrence of a central serous retinopathy.
