Abstract

PURPOSE: To report a case of retinal vasculitis associated with Epstein-Barr virus infection.

METHODS: Case report.

RESULTS: A 26-year-old woman came with blurry vision. Funduscopy illustrated vasculitis with frosted branch-like appearance. The patient was treated with systemic acyclovir and topical steroid. Circulating polymerase chain reaction was positive for Epstein-Barr virus antibodies. Two months of treatment resolved the clinical manifestations.

CONCLUSION: Epstein-Barr infection should be considered as the etiology of retinal vasculitis with similar clinical manifestations.
