Viral retinitis is an important infectious disease of the retina occuring in both healthy as well as immunocompromised persons. Although viral retinitis usually can be diagnosed by the fundus picture but in case of diagnostic dilemma for suspected viral retinitis, aqueous and vitreous specimens have greater diagnostic value as compared to serologic studies. Here, we report a case of presumed viral retinitis with negative PCR but responded well with timely antiviral therapy with good visual outcome.
