Abstract

Rapidly declining visual acuity from neuroretinitis should prompt aggressive diagnostic intervention to preserve eyesight. We present a young adult with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in whom neuroretinitis was the presenting feature of disseminated bartonellosis. Tissue biopsy was required to establish the diagnosis and directed therapy was associated with restored vision.
