Central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR) is characterised by retinal serous detachment usually localised in the macular region. CSCR predominantly affects men between 30 and 50 years of age. Traditional classification differentiates between acute (duration shorter than 4 to 6 months) and chronic disease (duration longer than 4 to 6 months). Optical coherence tomography (OCT) reveals subretinal fluid (SRF) and/or single retinal pigment epithelial detachments. Fluorescein angiography (FA) usually shows a leaking point with absent or only minor RPE changes in the acute phase and indocyanine green angiography (ICG) highlights circumscribed areas of thickened and hyperpermeable choroid. In the presence of secondary CNV, anti-VEGF treatment should be initiated. It is unclear whether the combination with PDT might be useful.
