Abstract

This case report describes central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) in a healthy man associated with the use of deer antler spray, an athletic supplement purported to contain insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1). The CSC resolved after cessation of the supplement. Currently, there are no reports in the literature linking IGF-1 and CSC. We conclude that agents containing IGF-1, such as deer antler supplements, may be correlated with the development of CSC.
