Abstract
We report a case of four month old child with low birth weight presenting with raised serum triglyceride (2793mg/dl) and serum cholesterol levels (1200mg/dl) with zone 2 stage 3 retinopathy of prematurity with lipemia retinalis. Though the regression of lipemia retinalis has been reported but there are no guidelines regarding treatment of ROP in such cases as this is an unusual finding.
