Abstract

A 40-year-old woman took oral contraceptives for four years. She developed a vascular glaucoma and one year later the eye was enucleated. No other apparent cause for the occlusion was present. The vascular occlusion consisted of a combined central retinal artery and vein occlusion with severe intimai hyperplasia. An intravascular granulomatous reaction is attributed to chronic vascular injury.
