Because most human cases of RVF are mild and self-limiting, a specific treatment for RVF has not been established. The rare, but serious, cases are generally limited to supportive care.
The most common complication associated with RVF is inflammation of the retina (a structure connecting the nerves of the eye to the brain). As a result, approximately 1% - 10% of affected patients may have permanent vision loss.
