We report here, a case of a 15 year old girl who presented with the complaint of reddish discolouration of vision in the left eye. This was ascertained to be due to a subhyaloid haemorrhage in the macular area. Haematological investigations and confirmatory bone marrow biopsy revealed severe dimorphic anaemia with thrombocytopaenia. Following blood transfusion under the physicianâ€™s supervision, the subhyaloid haemorrhage showed signs of resolution and there was improvement in the vision. This case report highlights the role of routine fundoscopy in all cases of anaemia, especially as retinal findings may be present with or without visual impairment.
