    Ultra-widefield fluorescein angiogram of a 71-year-old female with retinal vascultitis affecting her left eye. The patient had a bilateral TAB performed in 5/2019 and 7/2019 which showed heterozygous for prothrombin mutation, but this would correlate with venous thromboembolism rather than arterial embolism. She has a history of elevated ESR and CRP. She experienced a new onset of vitreous debris on 6-1-2020 combined with findings of severe vascular occlusion/vasculitis with diffuse leakage on angiography suggests underlying inflammatory component rather than prothrombotic occlusion secondary to prothrombin mutation. There is persistent significant vasculitis noted on angiography on 1/25/2021.
