Purpose: Necrotizing retinopathy is an uncommon, devastating, potentially blinding condition, which can be seen in both immunocompetent and immunocompromised patients. The purpose of this case is to report a new subset of necrotizing viral retinopathy. Observation: A 34-year old lady presented to our outpatient department with sudden diminution of vision in both eyes following a brief history of viral fever with vesicular rashes. Fundus examination showed areas of necrotizing retinitis in posterior pole involving macula with scattered superficial retinal hemorrhages, cotton-wool spots in both the eyes. She was treated with intravenous acyclovir and oral valacyclovir. Conclusion and importance: Our case may represent a new subset of necrotizing viral retinopathy, which may intermediate the clinical pictures of acute retinal necrosis and progressive outer retinal necrosis.
