Choroidal rupture is a break in the choroid, Bruch’s membrane and Retinal pigment epithelium.
Usually occurs secondary to blunt or penetrating ocular injury.
Mechanism can be direct insult, where choroidal rupture occurs anteriorly to the site of impact generally parallel to ora serrata and peripheral retina. In Indirect trauma, it occurs away from the site of impact, more posterior and often concentric to optic disc.
Case Report: A 25-years-female presented to us with history of trauma sustained to right eye 1 year back afflicted by a steel rod. Patient noted sudden, significant reduction in vision following trauma. Best corrected visual acuity in right eye is counting fingers 3m, left eye is 6/6 partial ( Snellen’s chart).
Intraocular pressure was 12 mmHg in right eye and 16mmHg in left eye. On anterior segment examination: right eye pupil was mid dilated and non reacting to light. Left eye: round, regular , reacting.
Fundus of right eye: Cresent shaped streak present vertical to optic disc. S/ o Choroidal rupture. Left eye fundus was within normal limits.
