Idiopathic Macular Ischemia: A Case Report

We report here a case with idiopathic macular ischemia. A 46 year-old man presented to the university hospital with the complaint of blurred vision in his right eye for a period of one month. Fundus examination revealed the perivascular sheathings and attenuating arterioles, collaterals in macula in both eyes. Fluorescein angiography showed central macular ischemia in both eyes. Optical coherence tomography showed posterior vitreous detachment, macular edema, epimacular membrane in the right eye and macular atrophy in the left eye. Systemic examinations were negative for systemic vascular or vasculitic disease. We consider that macular ischemia might occur as idiopathic.
