Anterior ischemic optic neuropathy comorbid with Factor V Leiden and PAI-1 4G/5G mutation.
Acute anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (AION) is a disabling disease which impairs visual functions. AION is characterized by ischemic injury of the optic nerve caused by hypoperfusion in the short posterior ciliary arteries supplying the optic nerve head. AION is a complex multi-factorial disease and is difficult to diagnose based on clinical symptoms and signs alone. We describe the case of a 54-year-old patient affected by AION, with only known risk factors were PAI-1 4G/5G and Factor V Leiden mutation with hyperlipidaemia (Ref. 36).
