Acute retinal necrosis syndrome (ARN) is a rare necrotizing, fulminant retinopathy caused by one of the members of the herpes group of viruses with poor visual outcome if not diagnosed and treated timely. The condition occurs typically in healthy person but may occur in immunocompromised also. We report a rare case of ARN misdiagnosed as toxoplasma but timely diagnosis and treatment results in good visual outcome.
