We report the first case of bilateral exudative retinal detachment in treatment naïve zone one aggressive posterior retinopathy of prematurity. Exudative detachments in retinopathy of prematurity have been reported in literature following laser photocoagulation or cryotherapy. But exudative detachment as an initial presentation in APROP is rather rare. The abnormality in our case was noticed at the second visit. A 20-day-old infant (born at 32 weeks of gestation) was diagnosed to have APROP. He was advised intravitreal bevacizumab injection (0.625 mg) in both eyes. Two days later when the infant was brought in for injection, he was found to have bilateral exudative retinal detachments almost reaching the posterior pole. We administered the intravitreal injections of bevacizumab in both eyes and the baby was followed up at regular intervals. Review at 1-month post-injection revealed resolution of detachments.
