Bilateral Central Serous Retinopathy in Patient with Chronic Kidney Disease on Haemodialysis: A Case Report ND03-ND04
Department of Ophthalmology, Chettinad Medical College, Kelambakkam, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India.
Central Serous Chorioretinopathy (CSCR) is the detachment of the neurosensory retina and/or Retinal Pigment Epithelium (RPE) due to accumulation of fluid in the sub retinal space, mostly confined to the macula. Hereby, presenting a rare case of a 32-year-old patient with defective vision in both eyes, she was a known case of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) on haemodialysis. On examination best corrected visual acuity was 6/9, on dilated fundus examination with ring reflex in both eyes, Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) macula showed detachment of the neurosensory retina from RPE with the sub retinal fluid. This case is considered to be rare due to the unusual association noted between CSCR and End State Renal Disease (ESRD), in a female patient with no history of usage of corticosteroids or known identifiable risk factors. Hence, it is essential to screen patients with ESRD for CSCR to prevent vision threatening complications.
