A Case of Bilateral Central Retinal Vein Occlusion

  • 1Department of Ophthalmology, College of Medicine, Dongguk University, Korea.


Retinal vein occlusion(RVO)is the second most common form of retinal vascular disease next to diabetic retinopathy. Systemic risk factors such as hypertension, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, blood dyscrasia and ocular risk factors such as short axial length, glaucoma, papilledema, thyroid ophthalmopathy have been shown to be associated with RVO. It is usually unilateral disease, and bilateral occurrene of RVO is relatively uncommon. CRVO rarely occurs bilaterally with a short interval between two eyes. Having experienced a case of bilateral CRVO within one month in a 75-year-old female with short axial length, primary open angle glaucoma, hypertension and hypercholesterolemia, we report this case with literature review.
