To report a case of orbital inflammation, papilledema, and exudative retinal detachment in myelodysplastic syndrome patient. Methods: A 63-year-age man with myelodysplastic syndrome visited our clinic due to proptosis and ocular pain in the left eye. Uncorrected visual acuity of his left eye was 0.6. Lid edema, chemosis, and subconjunctival hemorrhage were revealed in the left eye. Orbit computerizd tomography scan showed lid swelling, proptosis and inflammation of retrobulbar area in the left eye. After admission, instillation of levofloxacin and fluorometholone acetate 0.1% 4 times a day with systemic antibiotics was started. Results: Although lid edema, chemosis and subconjunctival hemorrhage were resolved, visual acuity of left eye was decreased at 7th day of admission. Papilledema, exudative retinal detachment were noted. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan images of brain were obtained because of worsened mental status. MRI scan showed left cerebral infarction with left middle cerebral artery stenosis. At 16th day of admission, the patient expired in spite of medical and ophthalmological treatment.
