A 36-year-old woman was diagnosed with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Seven days after beginning glucocorticoid treatment, she developed reduced visual acuity, and atypical severe central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) was confirmed. Since glucocorticoid use is an important risk factor for CSC, the PSL was reduced, tacrolimus was added, and the visual acuity improved rapidly. Reduction in glucocorticoid combined with the use of immunosuppressive agents is one option for preventing a deterioration in atypical severe CSC while still controlling SLE.
