Adult-onset Still's disease is a multisystem inflammatory disorder of unknown etiology and is characterized by high, spiking fever, arthritis, evanescent maculopapular rash, myalgia, serositis, leukocytosis, and involvement of various organs including the eyes. The ocular manifestations have been described including orbital pseudotumor, ptosis, and diplopia with orbital pain but never Purtscher's-like retinopathy. We describe a 21-year-old male patient with adult-onset Still's disease who developed the Purtscher's-like retinopathy. To our knowledge, this is the first reported adult-onset Still's disease patient with Purtscher's-like retinopathy as the initial presentation.
