Abstract

Purpose: To report a case of foveolitis associated with dengue fever. Methods: Retrospective, observational case report. Case description: A 12-year-old male child, presented to the retina department with complaints of sudden blurring of vision in left eye since 1 week following dengue fever. His presenting visual acuity in left eye was 20/60, N8. Fundus showed wellcircumscribed, pale yellow-orange lesion at the foveal center in LE. Retinal imaging findings were consistent with the diagnosis of foveolitis. Results: Foveolitis and macular swelling were found to resolve over time on serial OCT, with visual acuity improving to 20/20,N6 with a resolution of scotoma. Conclusion: Infection with dengue virus might be associated with foveolitis. We suggest that serial OCT be performed to monitor maculopathy.
