Abstract: 

INTRODUCTION: The cilioretinal artery, which derives from the circle of Zinn, is formed by small branches from the short posterior ciliary arteries. This artery goes through the optic nerve to participate as a parallel source for perfusion and blood circulation to the inner retina. Cilioretinal arteries, which are the most common congenital vascular anomalies of the retina, have been reported in 6–30% of normal eyes. The significance of this artery is preservation of macular perfusion in eyes with occlusive retinal vascular diseases. Herein, we report the spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) features of a patient with aberrant and prominent cilioretinal artery extending to the center of the fovea resulting in macular distortion, visual disturbance and amblyopia.
