This article focuses on nonischemic central retinal vein occlusion associated with celiac disease. Celiac disease is a small intestinal malabsorptive disorder precipitated by ingestion of gluten products. Multiple cases of intra-abdominal venous thrombosis have been reported in patients with celiac disease. Although patients with an inherited or acquired predisposition to thrombosis have a lifelong risk, they experience clinical thrombosis only episodically, suggesting that additional exogenous insults are necessary to precipitate a clinical event. Therefore, thrombotic episodes are likely multifactorial events in patients who have an inherent predisposition to thrombosis.
