Abstract

Dengue fever is a major health concern in India. There are various reports in the literature regarding the ocular manifestations of this febrile illness. We are reporting a rare case of a woman in her late 30s who developed coexisting bilateral ciliochoroidal effusion syndrome with an isolated cytotoxic corpus callosum lesion associated with dengue febrile illness. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of its kind. It opens the avenues for neurological and radioimaging attention for such cases with bilateral ciliochoroidal effusion syndrome.
