    Sequential optical coherence tomography images of early acute retinal necrosis

    A 33-year-old healthy man presented with defective vision in the left eye for 10 days. Visual acuity in the right (OD) and left eye (OS) was 6/6 and counting finger, respectively. Fundus examination OD was normal whereas OS showed a yellowish-white lesion at the macula and multiple discrete lesions in the periphery and mid-periphery. SDOCT (Heidelberg Engineering, Heidelberg, Germany) OS showed hyperreflectivity of inner retinal layers with extensive loss of retinal tissue suggestive of necrotizing retinitis [Figure 1] . Considering the differentials of tuberculosis, toxoplasma, syphilis, and viral infection, which can cause necrotizing retinitis, a thorough workup was done. While ...
