    An 18-year-old woman with retinal vasculitis developed multiple retinal arterial aneurysms over a period of 3 years. Subsequently she developed macular oedema, peripheral neovascularisation, and vitreous haemorrhage and was treated with systemic steroids, laser photocoagulation, and vitreoretinal surgery. No systemic cause for vasculitis was found. Serial fluorescein angiography demonstrated gradual resolution of the arterial aneurysms over the subsequent 7 years.
