Amaurosis fugax associated with ophthalmic artery stenosis: clinical simulation of carotid artery disease.
A 72 year old woman complained of transient loss of vision in the left eye. She had undergone a left carotid endarterectomy 10 years previously. Reduced ophthalmic artery pressure was found on noninvasive carotid artery testing and cerebral angiography was performed. No lesion was evident in the carotid artery, but significant ophthalmic artery stenosis was identified. We report this case as showing the occurrence of amaurosis fugax in association with ophthalmic artery stenosis.
