Abstract
Purpose: We report a case of branch retinal artery occlusion (BRAO) in a healthy pregnant woman.



Method: A 29-year-old pregnant woman presented with decreased vision in her left eye. She had a pale retina with macular edema consistent with BRAO. An extensive workup was performed to determine an etiologic factor. All test results were within normal limits except for her factor VIII activity. Her visual acuity improved from finger counting to 20/30 over 2 months without any treatment.



Results:This case suggests that BRAO can occur in healthy patients without any systemic or ocular disorders.



Conclusions: BRAO can occur in healthy patients without any systemic or ocular disorders, despite an extensile evaluation.
