Abstract

Aims: To evaluate the optic coherence tomographic (OCT) features in acute central serous chorioretinopathy (ACSC) with time-domain or spectral-domain OCT at Dokuz Eylul University, Department of Ophthalmology, Izmir, Turkey.

Subjects and Methods: Clinical data from the Department of Ophthalmology (of Dokuz Eylul University) including fluorescein angiography (FA) and OCT findings of 39 eyes of 34 patients with ACSC were retrospectively analyzed. Eleven eyes (Ntd =11) were examined with time-domain (Stratus OCT 3, Version 4.0) and 28 eyes (Nsd =28) with spectral-domain OCT (Heidelberg HRA2 Spectralis).

Results: Of the sample of 34, twenty-four patients (70.6%) were men and 10 women (29.4%). FA demonstrated smokestack type hyperfluorescence in five eyes (12.8%), a round ink blot type hyperfluorescence in 32 eyes (82.1%) and diffuse leak-age in two (5.1%) eyes. Twenty-five eyes (64.1%) had only one leakage site, five eyes (12.8%) hadtwo leakage sites and nine eyes (23.1%) had three or more leakage sites. Detachment of the neurosensory retina was detected in 37 eyes (94.9%, 11 eyes with Stratus OCT and 26 eyes with Spectral OCT). Pigment epithelial detachment (PED) was detected in nine eyes (23.1%, one eye with Stratus OCT and eight eyes with Spectral OCT). Protrusion of the RPE layer was detected in 10 eyes (25.6%, all eyes with Spectral OCT). Both fibrinous exudates and bridging between the neurosensory retina and PED was detected with Spectral OCT in four eyes (10.2%). Retinal dipping was detected with Spectral OCT in two eyes (5.1%).

Conclusion: Spectral-domain OCT seems to yield more information and depicts RPE layer protrusion, fibrinous exudates and bridging better when compared to conventional time-domain OCT.  (S Afr Optom 2012 71(4) 166-170)
