Ocular Findings in Yellow Fever Infection

Ocular Findings in Yellow Fever Infection Key PointsQuestionDo patients with acute yellow fever infection present with positive ocular findings? FindingsIn this case series, 2 patients with acute yellow fever virus infection presented with bilateral increased choroidal thickness on ocular ultrasonography. One patient, who died after onset of the infection, also presented with bilateral 360° choroidal detachments and yellowish subretinal lesions; the other patient, previously vaccinated for yellow fever virus, presented with bilateral increased retinal venous congestion. MeaningHemodynamic instability or the direct result of viral infection might be associated with the positive ocular findings in these patients with yellow fever virus. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA Ophthalmology American Medical Association

Abstract

Key PointsQuestionDo patients with acute yellow fever infection present with positive ocular findings? FindingsIn this case series, 2 patients with acute yellow fever virus infection presented with bilateral increased choroidal thickness on ocular ultrasonography. One patient, who died after onset of the infection, also presented with bilateral 360° choroidal detachments and yellowish subretinal lesions; the other patient, previously vaccinated for yellow fever virus, presented with bilateral increased retinal venous congestion. MeaningHemodynamic instability or the direct result of viral infection might be associated with the positive ocular findings in these patients with yellow fever virus.
