Abstract

Central serous chorioretinopathy(CSC) is characterized by a serous elevation of neurosensory retina in the posterior pole of the fundus. Its etiology and pathophysiological basis are still unknown. But it is known to be related to corticosteroid therapy. We experienced a development of CSC in a patient who had taken high dose systemic corticosteroid to treat sudden hearing loss. So we report this case with a review of the literatures.
