    The clinical syndrome of diffuse unilateral subacute neuroretinopathy (DUSN) has been characterised in its early and late stages. Different types of migrating worms in the subretinal and intraretinal space have been described as the cause of the clinical syndrome. We observed a patient with a long history of visual loss, vitritis, and a fundus of abnormal appearance where the worm was noted to migrate to different areas over the course of hours.
