A patient sustained a traumatic choroidal rupture with a subretinal pigment epithelial hematoma that resolved with return of vision of 20/40. Subsequent examination and fluorescein angiography documented development of choroidal neovascularization with secondary serous macular detachment.
Argon laser photocoagulation was successful in obliterating the neovascularization with its potential for disciform macular hemorrhage and attendant visual loss.
