Maha Shahin_RETINA PHOTO 2015

A healthy 40-year-old man with history of amaurosis fugax in the left eye. 2 days later, he developed scotoma. Examination revealed retinal whitening along the course of one of the cilioretinal arteries and scattered retinal hemorrhages. On fluorescein angiogram of the affected eye, the cilioretinal arteries filled normally. There was marked delay in the filling of the central retinal vein. The patient had no systemic diseases, and showed non-ischemic CRV O. This finding suggests a relative hypoperfusion of the cilioretinal arteries secondary to increased retinal venous pressure.
