Abstract

The association between retinal hemorrhages and meningitis has been previously documented; however, all of these cases were among critically ill patients with clinically progressive bacterial meningitis. This case report describes a patient with aseptic meningitis who presented with retinal hemorrhage. Physicians should consider meningitis in the work-up of patients presenting with retinal hemorrhage.
