Obliterative Retinal Vasculopathy

Retinal vasculopathy

The white, string-like vessel has been completely occluded by an old thrombus. Longstanding occlusion of arterioles gives them a thready, white appearance, like a pipe cleaner.

This patient, who has lupus erythematosus, has visual field loss corresponding to the area of infarcted retina around this obliterated arteriole.
