dc.description.abstract In Malaysia and globally, infectious diseases remain a complicated and never- ending series of problems affecting multiorgan and system including the eyes. Retinitis as a consequence of infection is potentially sight threatening and occurs in both immunocompetent and immunocompromised individuals. Retinitis may affect human in eye per se or often as a manifestation of systemic illness. A total of 24 patients and 31 eyes were included in this retrospective electronic observational case series review. Only cases with positive history and clinical findings together with positive laboratory findings in Hospital Selayang from 2015 until 2017 were analysed. We excluded Retroviral cases as they may have multifactorial cause of immunodeficiency as a result of opportunistic infections. Our target is to identify common cause of infectious retinitis in immunocompetent and immunocompromised patients hence can offer good treatment and prevent blindness. In the future we plan to extend period of our study to include more cases of infectious retinitis besides to compare differences between those groups. en_US
