Central Serous Retinopathy (CSR)
A classic "smokestack" of leakage from the choroid is seen is this fluorescein angiogram. The fluid leaks into the subretinal space causing decreased visual acuity. Central serous retinopathy (CSR) is typically found in young males. There is a documented association with stress and steroid use.
