Abstract

Three patients with idiopathic exudative retinal detachment are presented. Fluorescein angiography and/or angioscopy was used in each case to demonstrate an area of leakage from the choroid into the subretinal space, accounting for the detachment. The leakage sites were treated by cryopexy or photocoagulation, resulting in reattachment of the retina in each case (four eyes). This method of examination and treatment should be considered in all cases of idiopathic exudative retinal detachment.
