A 15-year-old female patient presented with complaints of headache, blurring of vision, and redness of both eyes for 15 days and fever for 20 days. Her best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was 20/40 in both eyes. Anterior segment examination was normal except for subconjunctival haemorrhage in both eyes. Examination of the posterior segment showed disc oedema in both eyes. Her blood investigations revealed platelet count to be 1.5 lakhs per cubic mm, and leucocyte count to be10,700 per cubic mm.CSF culture showed seven cells per microlitre,76% lymphocytes and CSF samples negative for gram stain, acid-fast bacilli, and culture. Further investigation for IgM titre for scrub typhus was positive. She was treated with oral doxycycline. On follow up after three weeks, both the subconjunctival haemorrhage and bilateral disc oedema resolved with BCVA of 20/20 in both eyes. She was kept on follow up and has not presented with any fresh complaints until six months after the initial presentation.”
