- Fundus photograph of a 26-year-old man with IRVAN syndrome referred for vitreous surgery in OS for secondary rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. OD has received laser photocoagulation for capillary nonperfusion areas and retinal artery macroaneurysm associated with retinal vasculitis. Fundus photograph of OD shows laser induced nasal BRAO. Case re-emphasizes why laser for macroaneurysm should be avoided in cases with IRVAN.
