Purpose: To report choroidal vascular abnormality in unilateral Purtscher's retinopathy.
Methods: Fluorescein angiography and indocyanine green angiography with a scanning laser ophthalmoscope were used to examine a 19-year-old man four days, three months, and five months after sustaining an injury in a car accident.
Results: Indocyanine green angiography showed an area of choroidal hypofluorescence that continued to be present up to five months after the accident.
Conclusions: Choroidal vasculature may be affected in Purtscher's retinopathy. Disorder in the choroidal microcirculation could be an additional cause of the resulting poor vision observed in some patients with Purtscher's retinopathy.
