This report describes a case of central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO) which was classified as papillophlebitis in a young female adult. In this age group, CRVO is relatively rare and tends to be mild in both its short-term and long-term visual consequences. The patient in this case showed a concurrent episode of bilateral intra-ocular pressure (IOP) elevation and the presence of cilio-retinal arteries in the affected eye. Despite extremely poor vision at presentation and the poor prognostic sign of cilio-retinal arteries, the patient made an excellent visual recovery with only mild paracentral field change.
