Study finds, Myopic Presentation of Central Serous Chorioret
A Study was conducted to increase insight into the myopic presentation of central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) by comparing a large group of myopic patients with CSC to reference groups with only one of the diagnoses.

Myopic cases with CSC, emmetropic patients with CSC and myopic, non CSC, patients were included. Disease characteristics and imaging parameters, like subfoveal choroidal thickness (SFCT) and ICGA patterns, were compared.

Results:
--In myopic CSC cases, median SFCT was significantly thicker than SFCT in myopic, non CSC patients, but thinner than emmetropic CSC patients.

--They also had pachyvessels in 70% of the eyes, comparable to emmetropic CSC.

--Choroidal hyperpermeability was frequently present on ICGA in both myopic and emmetropic CSC eyes.

Conclusively, other from their thinner choroids, myopic CSC has similar imaging and clinical characteristics to emmetropic CSC.
