Idiopathic or spontaneous cilio-choroidal detachment has been described in the literature as detachment of anterior part of choroid and ciliary body without any obvious cause[2]. The largest number of cases i.e. seventeen have been reported by Schepens and Brockhurst[3].


  Case report Top


A male aged 45 years reported in the out door of Institute of Ophthalmology with the sole complaint of chronic progressive diminu­tion of vision, L.E. for last two years. On examination, the visual acuity was found to be 6/6 J1 in R.E. and 2/60 in LE. The anterior segment of left eye was normal. On direct Ophthalmoscopy. a temporal choroidal detach­ment was seen. The indentation indirect Ophthalmoscopic examination revealed an alround annular choroidal detachment in the periphery with lobular extension in the temporal central retina without any associated retinal detachment [Figure - 1]. There was no evidence of any exudative or vascular pathology in the fundus. There was no history of trauma or intra-ocular surgical procedure in the left eye.


  Discussion Top


Schepens and Brockhurst[3] have reported bilaterality of such detachment in 76.47 % of cases. It is generally believed that such detachments spontaneously resolve and surgical procedures of sclerotomy and diathermy punc­ture[1] and encircling by polythene tube[3] have yielded unsatisfactory results.


  Summary Top


An interesting case of unilateral idiopathic cilio-choroidal detachment is presented.
