Effect of Helicobacter Pylori Treatment on Idiopathic Central Serous Chorioretinopathy (ICSCR)
Effect of Helicobacter Pylori Treatment on Remission of Idiopathic Central Serous Chorioretinopathy (ICSCR)
Etiology of ICSCR is not known however recent studies regard the role of immunologic and infectious processes in the pathogenesis of of these hypothesis is the role of helicobacter pylori in the pathogenesis of ICSCR so perhaps treatment of h pylori have positive effect on the remission of ICSCR.
we will choose 50 cases of patients with ICSCR who are infected with h.pylori.25 cases will receive anti h.pylori regiment and 25 cases as controls will receive no medication.then we will compare the time of submacular fluid resorption and macular thickness and visual acuity among these two groups.
