Abstract

Purpose: To report a case of post-streptococcal retinal vasculitis. Design: Review of a case. Methods: Review of patient chart and flourescein angiography. Results: A 17 year old African American female presented with moderate vitritis and macular edema in the right eye and retinal vessel sheathing in both eyes. Conclusions: Although CNS vasculitis is well recognized as a post-streptococcal syndrome, this case illustrates that retinal vasculitis can also occur in this setting, and can resolve with oral steroid therapy.
