The Association between Dominant Macular Drusen and Central Retinal Artery Occlusion in Young Females with Cardiac Valve Disease.

Al-Dhibi H, Bouhaimed M - Middle East Afr J Ophthalmol (2008)

Bottom Line: First patient, a 22-year-old female was presented with right central artery obstruction associated with bilateral dominant macular drusen.Second patient, a 34-year-old female with a previous history of right central retinal artery obstruction diagnosed elsewhere.Fundus exam showed bilateral dominant macular drusen and her systemic evaluation revealed severe rheumatic valve stenosis, moderate aortic regurge with moderate to severe tricuspid regurge and she underwent mitral valve replacement.

ABSTRACT
To describe uncommon association between central retinal artery obstruction and dominant macular drusen in two young female patients. First patient, a 22-year-old female was presented with right central artery obstruction associated with bilateral dominant macular drusen. Systemic evaluation disclosed the presence of mitral valve regurge. Second patient, a 34-year-old female with a previous history of right central retinal artery obstruction diagnosed elsewhere. Fundus exam showed bilateral dominant macular drusen and her systemic evaluation revealed severe rheumatic valve stenosis, moderate aortic regurge with moderate to severe tricuspid regurge and she underwent mitral valve replacement. To the best of our knowledge, the association between central retinal artery obstruction and dominant macular drusen was not previously reported.
