Overview

Acute retinal necrosis must be differentiated from other diseases that cause eye pain, conjunctival infection, photophobia, and vision loss.

Differentiating acute retinal necrosis from other diseases

Acute retinal necrosis must be differentiated from other diseases that cause eye pain, conjunctival infection, photophobia, and vision loss. Accurate and prompt diagnosis is critical to prevent blindness and other complications. Differentiating acute retinal necrosis from other diseases is crucial due to varying etiologies of ocular diseases, particularly to ensure the best prognosis by applying the proper therapy. Specific diseases from which ARN must be differentiated include:[1][2][3][4][5][6]
