Retrohyaloidal, or pre-retinal hemorrhage is a localized collection of blood most often between the posterior hyaloid and the internal limiting membrane.
It is a frequent complication of various retinal pathologies such as proliferative diabetic retinopathy, retinal arterial macroaneurysms, and may be more rarely secondary to a Valsalva or spontaneous maneuver.
We report the case of a 34-year-old female patient consulting in the ophthalmological emergency room for a sudden, painless drop in visual acuity in the right eye in which the examination finds a retro-hyaloid hemorrhage and a general clinical anemic syndrome.
The objective of our work is to underline the semiological importance of a unilateral decrease of visual acuity in the context of a hemorrhagic syndrome.
The occurrence of retro-hyaloid hemorrhage should suggest a syndrome hemorrhagic, which is most often associated with severe anemia. This must lead to an emergency etiological assessment, which can allow the diagnosis of a immunological thrombocytopenic purpura.
