Oral rifampin for central serous retinopathy: A strategic approach in three patients

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The authors present three cases of chronic central serous retinopathy in which rifampin was used for the utility of its oral delivery in remote care and as an alternative to photodynamic therapy when intravenous access was not possible. In each of these cases, a reduction of subfoveal fluid and improvement of visual acuity were achieved.
