Abstract

A case of acute annular outer retinopathy (AAOR) is presented in a patient that was later proved to be positive for the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

The etiology of AAOR remains unknown, although a viral infection or an autoimmune mechanism has been suggested. The case presented here is noteworthy because it is the first case described in a patient with HIV positive serology. Even so, the precise role played by HIV infection or secondary immunosuppression in the development of the AAOR is not known.

Keywords:
AAOR
Acute zonal occult outer retinopathy
HIV
Retinal disease
Autoimmune disease
Resumen

Presentamos un caso de retinopatía anular externa aguda (acute annular outer retinopathy [AAOR]) en un paciente en el que se demostró positividad para el virus de la inmunodeficiencia humana (VIH).

La etiología de la AAOR es desconocida, aunque se han sugerido como desencadenantes la infección viral o un mecanismo autoinmune. Nuestro caso es relevante por ser el primero descrito en un paciente con serología positiva para VIH. Aun así, desconocemos el papel que ha jugado la infección por VIH o la inmunosupresión secundaria en el desarrollo de la AAOR.
