Abstract

Purpose: To report retinal findings in a patient with fibromuscular dysplasia. Methods: A retrospective case report. Results: A 36-year-old female patient with fibromuscular dysplasia and a history of cerebrovascular events presented with painless vision loss in the left eye. Ophthalmologic evaluation demonstrated retinal vascular occlusive disease and secondary macular thinning. Conclusion: This case demonstrates that fibromuscular dysplasia can affect the retinal vasculature and lead to macular ischemia and vision loss.
