Title: CRAO in Takayasu Arteritis

Description: A 16-year-old boy, k/c/o Takayasu arteritis presented with sudden onset painless DOV. Fundus was pale and FFA had significant nonperfusion areas which were suggestive of CRAO. A poor visual prognosis was explained and he was advised to continue Immunosuppressive treatment. Rarely CRAO may be the presenting feature in Takayasu Arteritis. We need to keep this rare entity in cases of young CRAO and investigate accordingly.

Title: X-Linked Juvenile Retinoschisis

Description: This fundus photo depicts X-Linked Juvenile Retinoschisis, a rare congenital disease of the retina caused by mutations in the RS 1gene, which encodes retinoschisin, a protein involved in intercellular adhesion and likely retinal cellular organization. Its prevalence is 1 in 15,000 to 30,000 and is one of the males’ main causes of juvenile macular degeneration. It is characterized by symmetric bilateral macular involvement beginning in the first decade of life.
