Title:
[Mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists as treatment option for acute and chronic central serous chorioretinopathy]. 
Abstract:
It is well known that central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR) is triggered by endogenous and exogenous glucocorticoids but the exact pathomechanism is not completely understood. According to the results of previous studies overactivation of mineralocorticoid receptors may play a decisive role in the pathogenesis of CSCR.Experimental studies have shown that overactivation of mineralocorticoid receptors in endothelial cells of the choroid induces increased permeability. In a pilot study inhibition...    »
