Findings that shed new light on the possible pathogenesis of a disease or an adverse effect

Central serous chorioretinopathy secondary to childbirth


A previously healthy 37-year-old woman presented with decreased vision in the right eye, noted suddenly during childbirth. Fundus examination revealed elevation at the right macula, and optical coherence tomography confirmed central serous chorioretinopathy in the right eye. No intervention was undertaken, and the symptoms and clinical findings resolved spontaneously over 2 months.
