Abstract

A case of uncontrolled hypertension with a vitreoretinal hemorrhage due to a retinal artery macroaneurysm of the right eye and chorioretinal scars of the left eye as initial symptom of hypertension is presented. End organ damage was undiagnosed until an intraocular hemorrhage appeared in the right eye. The hemorrhage and retinal macroaneursym disappeared spontaneously with proper medical therapy for hypertension. (C) 2003 Elsevier Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.
