Brief introduction of runner choroidal atrophy

Serpiginous choroidal atrophy, also known as geographic helicoids peripapillary choroidopathy, is a chronic recurrent disease of choroidal capillaries and retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) in the posterior pole of fundus. This disease was first reported by Junis as juxtapapillary choroidoretinitis, and then some authors called it geographic choroiditis, serpiginous choroiditis or serpiginous choroidopathy. In 1962, Franceschetti called it geodegenerative rotational retinal choroidal degeneration (geodegenerative retinochoroidal degeneration). The clinical manifestations described by different authors are chronic progressive choroidal capillary and RPE lesions.
