Abstract: 

Purpose: To report three patients with central serous chorioretinopathy (CSR)who had undergone kidney transplantation and corticosteroid therapy.
Patients and Findings: First case: A 34 year-old woman presented with decreased vision in the left eye. She was under systemic corticosteroid therapy for 30 months due to kidney transplantation. Second case: A 29 year-old woman presented with decreased vision in her left eye. She was under systemic corticosteroid therapy for 9 years due to kidney transplantation. Third case: A 23 year-old man presented with decreased vision in his right eye. He was under corticosteroid therapy for 2 years due to kidney transplantation.In all three cases, in ophthalmoscopy and fluorescein angiography detected serous neurosensory detachment with leakage in the macula.
Conclusion: Corticosteroids and organ transplantation are risk factors for CSR. Thus in patients with CSR due to corticosteroid therapy, we should discontinue or reduce corticosteroid dosage.
