Abstract

In this case report an immunocompetent patient developed retinitis after implantation of an intravitreal dexamethasone implant following a primary infection with cytomegalovirus. The implant was prescribed due to a history following a central vein occlusion with macular oedema and loss of vision. Vision improved after implantation, however, due to retinitis a vitrectomy was performed proving infection with cytomegalovirus. This case and two other recent presentations warrant the consideration cytomegalovirus infection in even immunocompetent individuals showing signs of retinitis following dexamethasone implantation.
