CSCR Gender Differences

Credit: The Ophthalmologist

While it has been noted that men are more likely to develop central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR) than women, there is also a question about gender-specific differences in responses to the condition. In answer to this, a new retrospective study published in Eye (1) examined 109 eyes of 58 patients (28 females and 30 males). The researchers employed a newly validated multimodal imaging classification system to classify both “Simple” and “Complex” CSCR, with visual acuity outcomes and differences being analyzed. The researchers concluded that while men tended to have higher rates of recurrence and progressive vision decline of CSCR, women were more likely to exhibit choroidal neovascularization (CNVM) as a sequela of CSCR.
