Segmental Retinal Infarct from Embolus

Retinal infarct

This refractile, yellow fleck is a platelet-fibrin-cholesterol retinal embolus called a Hollenhorst plaque. It has lodged at a critical bifurcation near the fovea and caused a moderate-sized branch retinal artery occlusion and a segmental retinal infarct. The patient would report an area of cloudy vision just above fixation.
