A 33-year-old female presented with sudden painless blurring of vision in both eyes. She gave a history of dog bite and had received two doses of intradermal anti-rabies vaccination 2 weeks prior to the onset of symptoms. Ophthalmological evaluation showed bilateral retrobulbar neuritis, superior nasal field defects in the right eye and vasculitis, and temporal hemianopia in the left eye. Extensive laboratory investigations ruled out all underlying infections, connective tissue disorders, and systemic vasculitis. Good response to pulse steroid therapy was noted. To our knowledge, this is the first case report of retrobulbar neuritis with retinal vasculitis following chick embryo cell-derived anti-rabies vaccination.
