This report describes a case of bilateral central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR) in a patient with angioid streaks. A 39-year-old male was referred for worsening vision. Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) at presentation was 5/10 in his right eye and 4/10 in his left eye. Fundus examination, fluorescein angiography, and optical coherence tomography were compatible with angioid streaks in both eyes associated with macular atrophy due to previous CSCR attack in the right eye and active nonresolving CSCR in the left eye. Macular laser photocoagulation was done in the left eye. After 3 months, subretinal fluid was absorbed and BCVA improved to 7/10. CSCR may occur rarely in patients with angioid streaks and ophthalmologists should consider CSCR in cases with angioid streaks and vision deterioration.
