A 49-year Asian female presented with 20/200 vision in right eye. Examination revealed central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR) with subretinal deposits [Figure 1]. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) demonstrated subretinal deposits at the fovea (a) and a distinct undulating ellipsoid zone (EZ) complex detachment in the inferior macula (c). She followed up only after three years. OCT showed complete and spontaneous resolution of CSCR with 20/60 vision (b, d). Our patient did not show the hallmark OCT findings of a typical bacillary layer detachment, that is, the classical pyriform shape with acute angled base, distinct intraretinal cystic space, ceiling, and floor in continuation with surrounding EZ and second hyper-reflective band in continuation with surrounding inter-digitation zone.
