Abstract
To report a case of slowly progressive traction and rhegmatogenous retinal detachment after successfully managed candida chorioretinitis. A 44-year-old immunocompromised woman was treated with voriconazole for fungal chorioretinitis. Six months after onset she developed a combined retinal detachment. Slow progression of retinal detachment was observed and vitrectomy was performed. The macular area remained attached and visual acuity was maintained. Ophthalmologists should be aware of this unusual complication after the resolution of active candida chorioretinitis.
