Abstract

• Two patients with acute retinal necrosis were treated with vitrectomy, intravitreal infusion of acyclovir, and prophylactic scleral buckling procedures. Both patients have had an uneventful postoperative course and a recovery of visual acuity; follow-up has been at five and 14 months. There has been no sign of toxicity from the intravitreally administered acyclovir by electroretinographic or clinical criteria.
