Purpose: To report the effect of long-term therapy with the alkylating agent cyclophosphamide in a case with serpiginous choroiditis and thus to contribute to the previously reported few cases showing the beneficial effect of long-term cyclophosphamide therapy for serpiginous choroiditis. Procedures: Oral cyclophosphamide therapy for 12 months in a case with unilateral active serpiginous choroiditis. Results: The active lesion responded well to long-term therapy with cyclophosphamide without recurrences and significant systemic side-effects. Conclusions: Long-term therapy with cyclophosphamide for serpiginous choroiditis is effective for improving vision and preventing recurrences.
