Abstract

To highlight the similarity in onset, clinical course, and resolution of central serous chorioretinopathy in two eyes, in two consecutive pregnancies in the same patient. A case report. Snellen visual acuity, slit-lamp examination, and optical coherence tomography (OCT). A 31-year-old female had central serous chorioretinopathy with sub-retinal exudates in left eye during the sixth month of her first pregnancy and later in right eye also during the sixth month of her second pregnancy two years later. Both eyes had spontaneous resolution of the lesions with final visual acuity of 1.0 each eye. To the best of our knowledge, there have been no reports of alternating CSCR with sub-retinal exudates, occurring exactly in the sixth month of two consecutive pregnancies, two years apart, with spontaneous resolution after deliveries.
