Introduction: -central serous
chorioretinopathy (CSCR) is a a retinal disease
characterized by serous neurosensory detachment
secondary to focal leakage at the retinal pigment
epithelium. The main objective of our study is to establish
the relation ship between stress and the occurrence of
CRSC with a structured approach using the Perceived
Stress Scale (PSS-10).
Methods:- We conducted a prospective case-control
study comparing the PSS-10 stress score in patients with
CSCR and in control patients with ocular pathology
other than CSCR.
Results: -Over a 3-year period from October 2019 to
October 2022, 10 patients diagnosed with CSCR were
matched for age and sex with the control group with
different ocular pathologies. The stress score for the
group of cases was 28.8, and for the controls 21.30, and
since the size of our sample is less than 10 (less than 30);
the verification of the normality of the distribution of the
sample with significance at 5% (P=0.2).
Conclusion: -The results obtained are statistically
significant, concluding that there is a difference in mean
between the two groups and consequently the influence of
stress on the occurrence of CSCR.
