Aplastic anemia is a rare, usually autoimmune disorder of bone marrow stem cells leading to pancytopenia and hypoplastic marrow that presents with anemia, infection or bleeding which can be potentially sight and life-threatening. Patients with aplastic anemia may present with various ocular manifestations; lid and orbital hematoma, sub-conjunctival hemorrhage, sudden visual loss due to vitreous hemorrhage or retinopathy and optic disc edema. A young male patient had symptomatic sever bilateral hemorrhagic retinopathy secondary to aplastic anemia; succeeding systemic allogenic hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation showed almost complete spontaneous resolution of the retinopathy and significant improvement in vision over a period of 16 weeks.
