Central Serous Chorioretinopathy, commonly referred to as CSC, is a condition in which fluid accumulates beneath the retina, causing a “serous,” or fluid-filled retinal detachment and vision loss.
Causes of Cystic Serous Retinopathy
The causes of CSC are not yet fully understood. It is thought that any systemic exposure to a corticosteroid drug may trigger or worsen Cystic Serous Retinopathy. Corticosteroids are found in allergy nose sprays and anti-inflammatory skin creams available over the counter, and these medications are frequently prescribed to treat a variety of medical conditions.
