Post typhoid fever immune related reactions affecting the eye is a rare finding which can have various presentations in which typhoid retinopathy is not a well-recognized sequela. Here we present a case of 59-year-old male who presented with right eye sudden painless loss of vision 4 weeks after typhoid fever which was diagnosed and treated successfully. His BCVA was 2/60 in the right eye and 6/6 in the left eye. Fundus examination showed retinitis along with macular serous detachment in right eye and retinitis in the left eye. Significant improvement in BCVA in the right eye was observed after treatment with oral steroid with resolving retinitis lesions. Diagnosis of post-typhoid immune-mediated retinitis was made with good resolution following treatment.
