We describe the case of a 24-year-old male with transplant-associated retinal thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) secondary to hemodynamic instability following renal transplant. Presenting symptoms were ocular and examination findings were consistent with a Purtscher-like retinopathy. This case demonstrates mixed retinopathy picture of ocular TMA following hypertensive crises post renal transplant along with viral retinitis.
