We report a case of bilateral retinal hemorrhages with macular edema in a patient with dengue fever (DF). This patient also had cerebral hemorrhage. A 17-year-old female presented with sudden painless loss of vision in her both eyes for 2 days associated with redness of eyes. She was diagnosed having DF based on detected dengue immunoglobulin M in her blood sample. Fundus examination of both eyes showed preretinal and intraretinal hemorrhages. Optical coherence tomography showed neurosensory detachment and macular edema. This case report warrants the importance of ocular screening in a patient having systemic complications of DF.
