Abstract: Chorioretinal folds (CRFs) are undulations of the choroid and overlying Bruch’s membrane, retinal pigment epithelium and neurosensory retina. CRFs represent a clinical sign that is mandatory to investigate assuming their association with several ocular and extra-ocular disorders. Recent advances in retinal imaging have improved the characterization of CRFs. More importantly, retinal imaging may be useful to detect ocular complications secondary to chronic CRFs, including the development of choroidal neovascularization.
