One patient with bilateral acute retinal necrosis underwent encircling scleral buckle, vitrectomy, and intravitreal acyclovir on both eyes. This procedure was performed on the right eye while the retina was attached. The retina of the right eye was reattached by performing fluid-gas exchange and modified panretinal photocoagulation when the retina subsequently detached. Soon after the development of retinal detachment in the left eye, the above surgical procedures were performed on the left eye, and the retina was successfully reattached.Bilateral acute retinal necrosis with significant vitreous opacification, which is a devastating ocular disease causing possible blindness in both eyes, requires more aggressive, early surgical management.
Key Words: bilateral acute retinal necrosis;early surgical management;modified panretinal photocoagulation;retinal detachment;vitreous opacification
