Retinal vasculitis is an inflammatory disease of the retinal vessels with immunologic pathogenesis, which may be accompanied by visual alterations. Results of angiofluorescence tests show continuous or segmentary perivascular sheaths. Retinal vasculitis may be associated with primary ocular disorders and several systemic processes such as herpes virus infection, rubeola, or human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).1,2
