Abstract

An uncommon case of unilateral vitreous and sub-internal limiting membrane retinal hemorrhages following COVID-19 vaccine

Giulia Mecarelli, Antonella Calandri, Filippo Avogaro* and Enzo Maria Vingolo

Purpose: To present a patient with unilateral sub-internal limiting membrane retinal hemorrhages and a vitreous hemorrhage following COVID-19 vaccine.

Methods: Observational case report and review of literature for pathogenesis of sub-internal limiting membrane (sub ILM) hemorrhages. Detailed fundus examination, spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (Heidelberg engineering) and fluorescein angiography.

Result: On the basis of the history taking, hematochemical and instrumental examinations, we could not identify any condition or risk factor that could determine this clinical presentation.

Conclusion: Temporal correlation to the COVID-19 vaccination administered 11 days before the onset of symptoms, may suggest a potential adverse drug reaction and must be taken into account.
