Hypotension and anaemia--a blinding combination

, : Hypotension and anaemia--a blinding combination. Anaesthesia and Intensive Care 35(5): 773-775

We present a case of complete blindness following severe dengue haemorrhagic fever complicated by anaemia and a dialysis-related episode of profound hypotension. The clinical and radiological features indicated an optic neuropathy, most likely ischaemic in aetiology. The features of posterior ischaemic optic neuropathy and differential diagnosis are discussed.
