PURPOSE: To report same eye recurrence of acute retinal necrosis syndrome. METHODS: Two case reports. RESULTS: Acute retinal necrosis syndrome recurred in the left eye of a 60-year-old man 13 years after the initial episode, and recurred in the right eye of a 49-year-old woman 8 years after the initial episode. The recurrent necrotic lesions developed in normal appearing retina, unrelated to the location of the previous lesions. The recurrent lesions were successfully treated with acyclovir. CONCLUSION: Patients with acute retinal necrosis syndrome should be followed because of possible recurrence not only in the other eye but also in the same eye.
