described enhanced depth imaging (EDI)-OCT, CT has been studied in many chorioretinal
diseases using this technology.
Fluorescein angiography (FA) is still considered the 'gold standard' test for diagnosing CNV, and is used to visualise the chorioretinal

The Zika surveillance case definition covers all birth defects that have been reported as potentially related to Zika virus infection and includes brain abnormalities such as microcephaly, intracranial calcifications, fetal brain disruption sequence, abnormal cortical formation, and porencephaly, among others; neural tube defects and other early brain malformations, such as anencephaly, spina bifida, encephalocele, and holoprosencephaly; eye abnormalities, such as microphthalmia/anophthalmia, cataracts, chorioretinal
and optic nerve abnormalities, among others; and consequences of central nervous system dysfunction, such as joint contractures and congenital sensorineural deafness.

The left eye had mild aqueous flare, a small chorioretinal
tear, and minimal vitreal hemorrhage, consistent with presumed blunt trauma.
In a more extensive study by Ventura et al (20) with 10 infants with microcephaly and presumed ZIKV infection, 3 of the children had eye exams within reference range, whereas the other 7 had a range of ocular abnormalities that included optic nerve hypoplasia, optic nerve double-ring sign, optic nerve head pallor, alterations in cup to disk ratio, foveal reflex loss, pigment mottling that ranged from mild to gross, and chorioretinal
Data of 21 eyes (21 patients) who had underwent surgery for RD accompanying chorioretinal

Comprehensive ophthalmologic examination of 29 infants with microcephaly, presumed caused by congenital ZV infection, revealed 10 (35%) had abnormalities, which included focal pigment mottling, chorioretinal
atrophy, hypoplasia and cupping of optic disk, loss of foveal reflex, macular atrophy, lens subluxation, and coloboma of iris.
Some surgeon emphasizes the necessity of creating a chorioretinal
