  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 47-year-old male presented with acute loss of vision in his left eye of 10 days' duration. He had a high fever one week before onset of eye symptoms. His corrected visual acuity was 1.2 right and 0.1 left. By funduscopy, the right eye showed segmental disc swelling and an exudatve retinal lesion. The left eye showed four retinal lesions, one involving the fovea. Fluorescein angiography showed hypofluorescence in the early phase and dye leakage and staining of the retinal lesions. Treatment with systemic levofloxacin, fluconazole and prednisolone resulted in recovery of vision in the left eye one month later. The retinal lesions almost disappeared leaving slight atrophy of retinal pigment epithelium 6 months after initially seen by us. All laboratory data were within normal limits.
