Effective therapeutic options are limited for the management of chronic central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR) complicated by exudative retinal detachments (RD). The authors describe the resolution of one such case following partial thickness scleral resection with mitomycin C.This 39-year-old male presented with a unilateral inferior exudative RD in the right eye. There was no history of steroid use either locally or systemically. The fundus fluorescein angiogram showed window defects and leaks typical of chronic CSCR. The axial length was 21.06 mm in the right eye and 21 mm in the left eye. Thickening of the ocular coats was evident on ocular ultrasound. Considering an axial length in the borderline-low range inferotemporal and inferonasal partial thickness scleral resection with mitomycin C was performed. The exudative RD resolved at 4 months.
