This is followed by 14 more chapters, which start with hereditary chorioretinal dystrophies and end with congenital anomalies of the optic nerve.
Cryotherapy: This technique is applied to the area of retinal break to increase the potential success of subsequent treatments or to create chorioretinal adhesion
Myopic degeneration: The elongation of the globe in this condition can lead to islands of chorioretinal degeneration, progressing to retinal pigment epithelium atrophy
retinal venous occlusive disease, the epiretinal membrane and vitreomacular traction, infectious chorioretinal inflammatory conditions, and posterior segment complications of anterior segment surgery.
5 High myopia is characterized by excessive and progressive elongation of the globe, resulting in a variety of secondary fundus changes that may lead to visual impairment, including retinal detachment, myopic macular schisis, macular hole, choroidal neovascularization, and zonal areas of chorioretinal atrophy.
However, very occasionally neovascularisation can arise from the retinal vessels on the surface, and grow down through the inner retina to meet the choroidal vessels (forming chorioretinal anastomoses).

Chorioretinitis and chorioretinal scars were observed in 89%-100% of infected children, and hydrocephalus (mostly triventricular dilation) in 96% (2,10,12,13).
Comprehensive multispecialty medical and developmental follow-up documented that 10 of 13 infants had dysphagia, 7 had epilepsy, 3 had chorioretinal abnormalities, all 13 had hypertonia, and 12 had pyramidal and extrapyramidal signs with dystonia (MMWR.

Central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR) is an idiopathic chorioretinal disease which causes serous detachment in the neurosensory retina, which may also be accompanied by pigment epithelium detachment.
