    We treated 2 patients with unilateral acute retinal necrosis in association with uveitis. The disorder began as anterior uveitis, secondary glaucoma, and retinal vasculitis, and then developed into retinal necrosis within a few months. The aetiology was obscure and the appropriate treatment debatable. We also review reports of patients showing the same clinical characteristics, termed Kirisawa-type uveitis and bilateral acute retinal necrosis, and believe the disorders to be identical.
