Abstract

Spontaneous retinal artery pulsations can be seen in aortic insufficiency, hyperthyroidism, and when the intraocular pressure exceeds the diastolic blood pressure. Aneurysms of the aorta and innominate arteries have also been associated with retinal artery pulsations. This report is of a case of transient marked central retinal artery pulsations secondary to glaucomatocyclitic crisis and aortic insufficiency. To our knowledge there has not been a case of transient central retinal artery pulsations reported due to this combination.
