Coronary thrombolysis with intravenous (IV) streptokinase is widely used as a strategy for coronary reperfusion for acute myocardial infarction (MI). Systemic administration of fibrinolytic agents is associated with hemorrhagic risks such as cerebral hemorrhage, gastrointestinal bleeding, cardiogenic shock, and unusual complications such as splenic rupture, aortic dissection, and cholesterol embolization. Herein, we report a case of intraocular hemorrhage 1 day after the IV administration of streptokinase for acute inferior-wall MI.
