Goldhardt R, Gregori NZ, Albini T, Yalamanchi S, Emanuelli A - J Ophthalmic Inflamm Infect (2011)

Bottom Line: This study aims to report a novel finding of posterior subhyaloid precipitates (PSPs) in two patients with cytomegalovirus (CMV) retinitis.A small case series was conducted.Inflammatory precipitates may collect in the posterior subhyaloid space in acute CMV retinitis and resolve with treatment.

Mentions: Best corrected visual acuity was 20/25 OD and 20/20 OS. Slit lamp examination demonstrated diffuse white keratic precipitates in the right eye with 2+ anterior chamber cell and no cell in the left eye. The lens was clear in both eyes. Dilated fundus examination showed 3+ vitreous cell in the right eye and extensive retinal necrosis with whitening and hemorrhage superiorly (Fig. 5a). Fundus evaluation of the left eye was unremarkable.Fig. 5
