An 82-year-old man presented with acute, painless vision loss in the left eye associated with headaches, jaw claudication, and scalp tenderness. Clinical examination and fluorescein angiography confirmed the diagnosis of a central retinal artery occlusion of the left eye. Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) of the left eye showed paracentral acute middle maculopathy (PAMM), and OCT angiography showed severe attenuation of the deep capillary plexus. This is the first case report of OCT angiography of PAMM associated with central retinal artery occlusion confirming the presence of ischemia of the deep retinal capillary plexus.
