To present a case of a 32 year old man, a miner, suffering from a visual impairment for a couple of months.
Knowledge of the causes of central serous retinopathy is still insufficient.
Based on fundus examination, optical coherence tomography and fluoresceine angiography, chronic central serous retinopathy was diagnosed.
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.
It seems that a snuff inahale may be one of a risk factors for an appearance or recurrence of a central serous retinopathy.
