Abstract

Purtscher retinopathy is an occlusive microangiopathy associated with traumatic causes and usually causes visual impairment. For non-traumatic origins, it is called Purtscher-like retinopathy (PLR). A 26-year-old man reported loss of vision in his left eye after the implantation of a telescoping stent for the treatment of an intracranial carotid aneurysm. The fundus of the eye showed numerous cotton-wool spots and superficial haemorrhages. The spontaneous evolution was favourable, with almost complete resolution, except for an inferior residual scotoma. The appearance of PLR may be associated with the implantation of an endovascular stent for the treatment of intracranial aneurysms. Copyright © 2020 Sociedad Española de Oftalmología.
