Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is a leading cause of blindness in children and one of the most important reasons of blindness in the perinatal period.

The aim of the paper was to present a nine-month-old baby boy with esotropia, microphtalmos and completely detached retina in one eye, as the end stage of the disease, who had not been checked for ROP. The boy was born in  the 32nd  gestational week, with 1670 g birth weight. Indirect ophthalmoscope examination and ultra-sonography of the left eye showed stage 5 retinopathy of prematurity. On the right eye, the finding was valid.

Retinopathy of prematurity today needs recognition, understanding and awareness among ophthalmologists, pediatricians, neonatologists. Early diagnosis of damage is important in the treatment of ROP. Acta Medica Medianae 2012; 51(1):37-41.
