The article discusses the case of a 37-year-old man with a blurred vision on his left eye. He passed through an optical coherence tomography and found an increased in reflectivity and thickness of the inner retina. According to the Carotid Doppler, he had a complete occlusion of left distal internal carotid artery (ICA). The article states that the case showed the presence of Amalric sign in central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO) and lateral posterior ciliary artery (LPCA) occlusion.
