The authors have recently experienced a case of traumatic retinal angiopathy of 1.5 year old child which followed immediately a relatively minor injury on the head. 5 days after the accident, external examination of both eyes appeared normal and the fundi showed retinal edema, numerous superficial whitish exudates and flame-shaped retinal hemorrhages predominantly between the disc and macula. X-ray examinations of skull and chest revealed no evidence of fracture. Complete blood cell count, urinalysis, stool and cerebrospinal fluid findings were normal limits. Abnormal neurological signs were not detected. The area of exudates gradually absorbed over a period of one month but hemorrhages were still remained around the macula. The peripheral vision seemed to be improved but central fixation remained poor. 2 months later the fundi presented optic atrophy, attenuated arterial caliberation and cherry red spot at each macula.
