Central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) is a disorder characterized by serous retinal detachment and/or retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) detachment, changes that are most often confined to the macula and due to leakage of fluid through the RPE into the subretinal space. CSC is a relatively rare cause of visual impairment, which typically affects the adult males (20–50 years).

No case has been reported in individuals younger than twenty before. CSC has been associated with the use of agents such as endogenous hypercortisolism and epinephrine. Iatrogenically systemic corticosteroids have been charged as a cause of CSC. But CSC after local intraocular dexamethasone implantation has not ever been reported yet. This might be the case report in the literature where CSC occurred following intraocular dexamethasone implantation.
