Ans. C

Explanation:

Ans. is ‘c’ i.e., Central serous retinopathy

Central serous retinopathy

  • Central serous retinopathy is caused by an accumulation of transparent fluid at the posterior pole especially at macula causing a circumscribed area retinal detachment in the macular region.
  • There is detachment of neurosensory retina (layers of rods and cones) with or without retinal pigment epithelium detachment.
  • The condition affects males between 20-40 years of age.
  • Patient presents with a sudden onset of painless loss of vision associated with relative positive scotoma, micropsia and metamorphosia.
  • Ophthalmoscopic findings include mild elevation of macular area demarcated by a circular ring reflex and foveal reflex is distorted or absent.
  • The diagnosis is confirmed by fluorescein angiography. It shows focal leakage of fluorescein in following two patterns : ‑

  Ink-blot pattern or enlarging dot sign :- A small hyperfluorescent spot which gradually increases in size.

Smoke-stack pattern :- Small hyperfluorescent spot which ascends vertically like a smoke stack and gradually spreads laterally to take a mushroom or umbrella configration
