Overview

Laboratory findings associated with acute retinal necrosis are those used to confirm the presence of the viral pathogen, including PCR test results, viral cultures, immunoflourescence results, and the detection of antibodies indicative of sources of acute retinal necrosis via the Goldmann-Witmer coefficient.

Laboratory Findings

Laboratory findings associated with acute retinal necrosis are those used to confirm the presence of the viral pathogen, obtained from aqueous humor or the vitreous.[1][2][3][4][5]
