Subretinal fibrosis in central serous chorioretinopathy

H SchatzD M Robertson


To report unusual and heretofore unreported visually damaging manifestations of severe central serous chorioretinopathy. Case studies. Each of six male patients (average age, 40 years) had a form of severe central serous chorioretinopathy with at least one eye containing fibrin in the subretinal space that then developed into a subretinal fibrotic scar. Scar formation was followed by a tenting up of the macula, vascularization of the fibrosis (subretinal neovascularization), or a retinal pigment epithelial rip. Four of the seven eyes with subretinal fibrosis had severe visual loss (20/400 or worse). Subretinal fibrin and other extracellular matrix molecules appear to stimulate the retinal pigment epithelium to undergo fibrous metaplasia, which results in subretinal fibrotic scar formation and other sequelae, all of which can lead to severe visual loss.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
