Pregnancy has been implicated in the pathogenesis of central serous corioretinopathy, along with stress, steroids, Cushing’s syndrome, systemic hypertension and lupus erythematosus.We present two cases of central serous corioretinopahty (CSC) during otherwise healthy pregnancies.Methods
Two patients that developed CSC during pregnancy are studied. Ophthalmological findings including visual acuity, slit-lamp biomicroscopy, fundus examination, fundus photography and optical coherence tomography are presented. Patients were re-evaluated six months after delivery.Results
Both patients had spontaneous resolution of CSC after delivery.Conclusion
CSC is a benign, self-limited disease that can present with or without white retinal exudates. Elevated levels of glucocorticoids, present during pregnancy, can contribute to the pathogenesis of this entity.
