Abstract/OtherAbstract:
PURPOSE: To describe the presentation of cytomegalovirus retinitis (CMVR) in a series of infants. METHODS: Immunocompromised infants with either HIV or systemic cytomegalovirus (CMV) were examined for CMVR. Ocular involvement was recorded and monitored by digital imaging. RESULTS: Five infants were detected to have CMVR. All the infants demonstrated changes within the macula. One infant progressed from a fine granular pattern to fulminant CMVR. CONCLUSION: Infants under a year with CMVR have a predilection for the disease to present at the macula, in contrast to the presentation in adults, which tends to involve more peripheral parts of the retina.
