Detachment of the bacillary layer has been reported recently, associated with different pathologies resulting in a hyperacute choroidal exudation, including posterior scleritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, toxicity secondary to anti-BRAF/anti-MEK therapy in melanoma, neovas- cularization secondary to choroidal osteoma, pulmonary and breast choroidal metastases, trauma, and peripapillary pachychoroid syndrome.
Bacillary layer detachment is a clinically recognizable entity can be present not only as a result of hyperacute choroidal exudation associated with inflammatory events but also due to congestion and choroidal hyperpermeability linked to a circulatory abnormality.
