PORN Cracked mud appearance

OPHTHALMOLOGY

A rare form of necrotising herpetic retinopathy, which is most common in immunocompromised patients–, often affecting patients with AIDS. 

Aetiology Unknown, probably linked to varicella-zoster infection 

Clinical findings Uni- or bilateral vision loss, floaters, constricted peripheral visual field; fundoscopy demonstrates perivenular lucency, followed by a so-called cracked mud appearance of the retina 

Complications include Rhegmatogenous retinal detachment secondary to atrophic, thin retina with multiple holes. Optic nerve involvement can also occur, presenting as a papillitis or neuroretinitis.

Prognosis Poor; retinal detachment and vision loss are the norm

It’s true after all…PORN can make you go blind

Abbreviation for Progressive outer retinal necrosis
