Extensive Choroidal Effusion after Argon Laser Peripheral Iridoplasty: A Case Report

This report describes a patient extensive chroidal effusion after Argon Laser Peripheral Iridoplasty (ALPI). This 45 year old man reffered with bilateral acute angle closure glaucoma. Nd-YAG laser peripheral iridotomy was successfully performed and IOP was controlled. Ten years after laser peripheral iridotomy, referred again with angle closure glaucoma and ALPI was done. Chroidal effusion developed in right eye one month after ALPI despite high IOP, and resolved completely after corticosteroid therapy. Based on this case report, choroidal effusion appears to be another complication of ALPI.
