Abstract

Acute retinal necrosis developed in the left eye of a 34-year-old femal. Vitrectomy and systemic acyclovir led to improvement of visual acuity from 0.4 to 0.9. The affected eye then developed preretinal proliferative membrane and complicated cataract. Findings after cataract surgery contraindicated surgical removal of proliferative membrane because of poor outlook regarding improvement of visual acuity.
