Focal Choroidal Elevations: Localized Pigment Epithelial Contour Alterations due to Isolated Choroidal Vessels

Figure 1

Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography findings in focal choroidal elevations and chorioretinal folds. (a) Left eye of a 79-year-old male with age-related choroidal atrophy, but no additional eye pathology demonstrating a focal chorioretinal contour change overlying a large choroidal vessel (arrow) or focal choroidal elevation; mean central macular choroidal thickness = 48 μm. (b) Right eye of a patient with idiopathic uveal effusion syndrome demonstrating chorioretinal folds overlying a relatively thick choroid that do not correspond to specific choroidal vessels. (c) Right eye of a patient with chorioretinal folds due to external globe compression from a lacrimal adenocarcinoma. Chorioretinal folds do not correspond to specific choroidal vessels as in (d) the right eye of patient with an encircling scleral buckle and chorioretinal folds.
