The Retina Reference

Choroidal Nevus with Macular Subretinal Fluid

Above are the photos of a 45 year old female, referred by her optometrist for evaluation of possible retinal detachment. Examination of the left eye showed a choroidal nevus involving the macula (red arrows) decreasing visual acuity to 20/100 because of overlying subretinal fluid. Fluorescein angiography confirmed focal leakage from the nevus (yellow arrows). Photo Dynamic Therapy (PDT ) was recommended for treatment.
