Abstract

Abstract PURPOSE: To describe the clinical manifestation and course of chorioretinitis presumed to be secondary to coxsackievirus infection in an adult. METHOD: Case report documented by fundus photography and fluorescein angiography. RESULTS: Ophthalmoscopic examination of a symptomatic 34-year-old woman showed several cream-colored parafoveal spots at the level of the retinal pigment epithelium and similar, multiple confluent spots in the midperiphery of both eyes. Titers for coxsackievirus B4 demonstrated a fourfold rise between acute and convalescent sera. CONCLUSION: Coxsackievirus B4 is apparently a rare cause of chorioretinitis but nevertheless should be considered in the appropriate clinical setting.
