Exudative retinal detachments

produce RPE changes charcterised by loss of RPE cells causing small areas of window defects as well as clumping of cells causing masking effect. This alternation of loss and clumping of RPE gives a mottled aspect on early angiographic frames due to increased transmission of background choroidal fluorescence (window effect) in some areas together with decreased transmission of choroidal fluorescence (bloking effect). Very often the limits of the ERDs are well identified on FFA by a demarcation line between affected and normal RPE called high water marks
