Abstract
Case report

A 56-year-old woman with atrial myxoma presented with a visual acuity of no light perception after acute ophthalmic artery obstruction (OAO) associated with stroke. She developed late retinal pigmentary changes due choroidal infarction, typical of the OAO.

Discussion

Simultaneous obstruction of the retinal and choroidal circulation was observed in the OAO. Atrial myxoma should be suspected in patients who suffer from OAO associated with stroke. Systemic studies should be performed to find the origin of OAO.

Resumen
Caso clínico

Una mujer de 56 años con mixoma atrial presentó una agudeza visual de no percepción luminosa tras la obstrucción aguda de la arteria oftálmica (OAO) asociada a accidente vascular cerebral. Tardíamente desarrolló cambios pigmentarios retinianos por infartos coroideos, una característica que diferencia la OAO de la obstrucción de arteria central de la retina.

Discusión

La obstrucción simultánea de las circulaciones retiniana y coroidea se observa en la OAO. Debe sospecharse la presencia de un mixoma atrial en aquellos pacientes con una OAO asociada a accidente vascular cerebral. Deben realizarse estudios sistémicos para encontrar la etiología de la OAO.
