Diffuse unilateral subacute neuroretinitis (DUSN) is a parasitic eye infection with characteristic abnormalities of the outer retina and retinal pigment epithelium and is caused by nematode infection, which can be located in the subretinal space.1 It is a primarily unilateral ocular disorder clinically characterized by a decrease in vision associated with vitritis, papillitis, and recurrent development of white linear lesions in the retina. The gold standard of the diagnosis of DUSN is the visualization of a motile worm. Herein, we report a case of subretinal Thelazia-induced DUSN.
