Rhegmatogenous retinal detachment in patients with cytomegalovirus retinitis: The foscarnet-ganciclovir cytomegalovirus retinitis trial
AIDS-Related Opportunistic Infections
Retinal detachment in patients with cytomegalovirus retinitis is unrelated to the type of intravenous therapy used or to refractive error. The median time to retinal detachment in an involved eye with cytomegalovirus retinitis and free of retinal detachment at baseline was 18.2 months. Strategies to reduce the extent of retinitis and possibly the number of reactivations may reduce the incidence of retinal detachment.
