Unusual presentation of a multiple sclerosis case involving central retinal artery occlusion

We present a patient with an unusual initial presentation of MS involving central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO) in the right eye (RE). Although retinal vascular changes are asymptomatic in the majority of MS patients, the spectrum of impairment ranges from simple peripheral retina periphlebitis to the presence of peripheral occlusive retinal vasculitis in 6.5% of patients. This atypical case may represent an extreme of the spectrum of retinal vasculitis associated with demyelinating disease. (Source: Saudi Journal of Ophthalmology)
