Importance Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a thoroughly examined multi-organ disease whose common ocular complications are also well documented. However, SLE choroidopathy, being a rare ocular complication, is needed to be better understood, in order to make the differential diagnosis from clinical conditions such as central serous chorioretinopathy and provide adequate prompt treatment. Objective To provide a clear understanding for the clinical course of SLE choroidopathy by the help of enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography, fluorescein angiography, and indocyanine angiography.
