Morjaria R, Tsaloumas M, Shah P - JRSM Open (2015)

Bottom Line: We report a case of retinal artery occlusion in a young adult in early pregnancy found to have a patent foramen ovale as the source of the embolism.This report suggests the importance of early cardiac investigation in such individuals.

fig2-2054270415596320: High magnification of normal right macula.

Mentions: A 32-year-old female Caucasian presented with a sudden onset decrease in vision in the left eye. She complained of a small left paracentral scotoma with associated left-sided headache. Presenting Snellen acuities were 6/6 right eye and 6/9 left eye. Colour vision was full in both eyes, however, slightly slower on the left side compared to the right. There was an early left relative afferent pupil defect. Anterior segment examination was unremarkable. Fundus examination showed marked pallor in the left nasal macula at presentation, consistent with a branch retinal artery occlusion. A very subtle change remains on the post-partum colour images when comparing the left nasal macula to the right at high magnification (Figures 1 and 2).Figure 1.
