    Ultra-widefield fluorescein angiogram of a 58-year-old female with possible peripheral vasculitis. There was no venous access for this patient, so the fluorescein was administered orally. The image was taken at 7:33 after oral administration. The physician stated that the peripheral nonperfusion could be a sign of previous vasculitis, although could also be a result of uncontrolled diabetes. She was asked to obtain additional bloodwork in order to rule out sarcoidosis, as well as sickle cell. It does not appear the nonperfusion has progressed since her last evaluation. Her vision was 20/40 in the right eye at the time the image was taken.
