Acute Retinal Necrosis: Is The Current Valacyclovir Regimen Adequate?

Abstract

Acute Retinal Necrosis (ARN) is a potentially devastating form of Uveitis. Antivirals are the mainstay treatment for this syndrome. In this letter, we question the current oral Valacyclovir dosage, based on the experience we had with a recent unresponsive ARN case.
