Purpose: To evaluate the clinical characteristics, treatment, and visual outcome of eyes with intraocular inflammation and associated serous retinal detachment (SRD). Methods: Records of 30 consecutive patients with intraocular inflammation and associated SRD were reviewed. Results: Patients were affected as follows: Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease 17, posterior scleritis 5, toxoplasmosis 3, rickettsiosis 2, , acute retinal necrosis 1, syphilis 1, and steroid induced SRD 1. Mean visual acuity at presentation was 20/200. Treatment resulted in improvement of visual acuity and resolution of SRD in all patients. Conclusion: Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease, posterior scleritis, and toxoplasmosis are the main causes of SRD in patients with intraocular inflammation. Early diagnosis, appropriate management, and close follow-up are mandatory to obtain rapid resolution of SRD and improvement of visual function in such patients.
