A case report
A 19 year old female patient who came to Cicendo Eye Hospital with a one week history of blurred vision in the left eye (LE). At initial evaluation a visual acuity of light perception in the LE, 1.0 in the right eye (RE) and a left relative afferent pupillary defect were found. Slit-lamp examination in LE showed anterior uveitis and vitritis. Fundoscopy revealed retinal edema, profuse soft exudates, and retinal haemorrhages. The patient has undergone laboratory testing also to find any possible underlying disease. Despite the late therapy for this patient, after treatment this patient has a rapid resolution of the inflammation.
The ARN is an ocular disease with poor prognosis, which in turns may display better course when determining the aetiopathogenic virus and selecting the appropriate and precocious therapy.
