STRANGULATION-INDUCED CENTRAL RETINAL ARTERY OCCLUSION: CASE REPORT AND REVIEW OF THE LITERATURE.

PURPOSE: To describe a patient with central retinal artery occlusion following an episode of mechanical strangulation.

METHODS: A retrospective case report. An 83-year-old man presented with acute vision loss in his right eye after a strangling episode. Multimodal clinical imaging was performed.

RESULTS: Visual acuity in the affected right eye was no light perception. Examination revealed optic nerve edema and optic nerve pallor and also severe vascular attenuation and a cherry-red spot in the macula.

CONCLUSION: Mechanical disruption of carotid plaque can lead to occlusion of the central retinal artery, which may portend a dismal visual prognosis.
