Bilateral acute retinal necrosis.
  1. N J Young and
  2. A C Bird


    In this paper 4 patients are described who had bilateral symmetrical confluent retinal swelling followed by apparent necrosis and sloughing of the retina into the vitreous. The disease was accompanied by signs of uveitis and the clinical appearance suggested inflammation rather than infarction as the pathogenic mechanism. No systemic abnormalities were found by which the aetiology could be identified.
