Abstract

Purpose:

To report a rare case of concurrent acute retinal necrosis in a patient with iridocorneal endothelial syndrome (ICE).

Methods:

Case report.

Results:

A 42-year-old woman showed acute diminution of vision in the right eye. Her fundus examination revealed features of acute retinal necrosis. She had also experienced gradual diminution of vision in her left eye for 5 years. The examination of her left eye revealed corneal edema with mild corectopia and increased intraocular pressure with abnormal endothelium on specular microscopy pointing to a diagnosis of ICE.

Conclusions:

This is a rare case where concurrent acute retinal necrosis and ICE syndrome are present in the same patient, possibly pointing to a common viral etiology causing both entities.
