VILCHES LESCAILLE, Daysi de la Caridad et al. Presentation of two serpiginous choroiditis cases. Rev Cubana Oftalmol [online]. 2011, vol.24, n.2, pp. 413-419. ISSN 0864-2176.
The serpiginous choroiditis is a non frequent, bilateral chronic and recurrent pathology. The middle-aged patients are mostly affected, with slight predominance of males. Two cases of this disease were presented, and brief review of the clinical characteristics, the diagnosis and the treatment of this pathology was made. The time of clinical observation was 3 years; the average age was 36 years. Females prevailed as well as the bilateral form of presentation. One patient had a history of blood hypertension. The diagnosis was based on clinical ophthalmological exam and angiographic study. The treatment consisted of combined immunosuppressive therapy (prednisone and cyclosporine). The visual prognosis is determined by the macular effect. The combined therapy with inmunosuppresors did not prevent relapses in these patients.
