Biological context of Choroiditis

  • CONCLUSION: In two patients with visual loss due to an atypical central lesion in serpiginous choroiditis, regression of the lesion without the development of a typical chorioretinal scar and subsequent improvement of visual acuity was achieved with the administration of oral prednisone [11].
