Phillips WB, Bergren RL, McNamara JA. Pars planitis presenting with vitreous hemorrhage. Ophthalmic Surg. 1993;24(9):630-1.
A 31-year-old woman complained of a sudden, painless decrease in vision of the right eye. Ophthalmic examination demonstrated a vitreous hemorrhage in the right eye secondary to peripheral neovascularization. The left eye demonstrated findings consistent with pars planitis. Before this episode, vision was good in both eyes. Although rare, vitreous hemorrhage can occur in the setting of pars planitis and may be a presenting symptom. Pars planitis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of young patients with vitreous hemorrhage.
