Abstract

TUNGPAKORN, N. Unusual visual loss after snakebite. J. Venom. Anim. Toxins incl. Trop. Dis [online]. 2010, vol.16, n.3, pp.519-523. ISSN 1678-9199.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S1678-91992010000300020.

Snakebites are endemic in some parts of Thailand, being associated with several complications. Ocular disturbances are uncommon, except in cases of corneal or conjunctival injury, when the eye is directly exposed to the snake venom. The present study presents a case of combined ophthalmic artery occlusion and transient central retinal artery occlusion with macular ischemia after a Russell's viper bite.

Keywords : snakebite; central retinal artery occlusion; macular ischemia; Vipera russelli siamensis.
