We report a case of bilateral progressive outer retinal necrosis (PORN) in a patient with acquired immune deficiency syndrome with CD4 count 50 cells/μL. He was treated with standard intravenous and intravitreal antivirals but ultimately developed complications such as retinal detachment and epiretinal membrane. His vision was preserved with early pars plana vitrectomy. This case demonstrates that prompt clinical diagnosis of PORN with its successful medical and surgical management can help prevent progression of this frightening disease.
