Abstract

A 43-year-old male with diabetes mellitus was referred to our clinic on August 20,1993, with the complaint of central visual field loss in the left eye. Branch retinal artery occlusion (BRAO) in the left eye and bilateral diabetic retinopathy were diagnosed. The next day, BRAO occurred in the right eye. On October 11, 1993, BRAO recurred in this patient's left eye, and 6 months later (in May 1994) neovascularization was noted on the iris and optic disc of this patient's right eye. The patient had (1) markedly increased platelet aggregation activity; (2) decreased cerebral blood flow, as shown by single photon emission computed tomography; and (3) constriction of the carotid arteries bilaterally, diagnosed by cervical echography. In this case, increased platelet aggregation activity caused by diabetes mellitus and disturbance of ocular circulation may have predisposed to BRAO.
