Oral submucous fibrosis (OSMF) is one of the most commonly found pre-cancerous conditions prevalent in Southeast Asian countries. The treatment method used by most patients is the use of intralesional steroids. With intralesional steroids used commonly, one might come across an unusual ocular complication - central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR). We report a case of a patient with OSMF who was treated by corticosteroids, subsequent to which he developed CSCR. He was put off steroidal treatment and treated conservatively to which he responded positively.
