We present a 13-year-old Caucasian female with idiopathic unilateral macular hemorrhage (MH). She complained of a sudden loss of vision in the right eye (OD) during physical exercise. The condition was accompanied by dizziness and vertigo. A few days prior to that she had infection of the upper respiratory tract. Shortly after the visual loss the patient had abdominal pain and vomiting. The vision in the affected OD was 0.3 (20/60). Optical coherence tomography (OCT) proved the diagnosis of MH. After 2 months of observation the vision of the affected eye recovered to 1.0 (20/20). This case is unusual as the MH developed in a young female patient with no significant past medical history and with the absence of retinal, choroidal, systemic or autoimmune diseases that could lead to MH.
