Pathology Embolism
Clinical The patient was a 61-year old male who suddenly developed a blur before the right eye and was found to have a superior altitudinal defect in the visual field. He was not known to have cardiac or other vascular disease. When seen shortly after the onset, an embolus was seen obstructing the inferior temporal artery on the nerve head and the corresponding retina was gray. The fundus photograph was taken 8 weeks after the onset. The embolus was unchanged and the inferior retinal artery was severely narrowed. The retina was, however, no longer opaque but the visual field defect remained.
Disease/Diagnosis Retinal artery occlusion
