This report describes a case of central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO) which was classified as papillophlebitis in a young female adult. In this age group, CRVO is relatively rare and tends to be mild in both its short-term and long-term visual consequences. The patient in this case showed a concurrent episode of bilateral intra-ocular pressure (IOP) elevation and the presence of cilio-retinal arteries in the affected eye. Despite extremely poor vision at presentation and the poor prognostic sign of cilio-retinal arteries, the patient made an excellent visual recovery with only mild paracentral field change.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
