Serpiginous choroidopathy is a chronic, recurrent, typically bilateral inflammatory disease of the chorioretinal pigmented epithelium. It is characterized by atrophic scars with active, yellow-gray borders, often extending in a serpent-like pattern from the optic disc. These photographs show the progression of the disease over a 10-year time period (the most recent photographs are located on the bottom). To read more about this serpiginous choroidopathy and this patient, see the full case report (http://webeye.ophth.uiowa.edu/eyeforum/cases/32-serpiginouschoroiditis.htm).
