A pregnant woman presented with acute retinal necrosis syndrome (ARNS) involving both eyes. She had had varicella eruption one month before the onset of the disease. Antibody titer to the varicella-zoster virus was elevated in the aqueous humor of both eyes. To our knowledge, this is the first report which showed apparent association of varicella eruption with ARNS caused by varicella-zoster virus.
