Central retinal vein occlusion associated with the polycystic ovarian syndrome.

Abstract

We report a case of central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO) in a young woman with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). CRVO in young patients is a rare condition, frequently associated with a severe underlying systemic disorder. This is the first report of CRVO associated with documented PCOS. We discuss the therapeutic dilemma.
