  • Fig. 15: Fluorescein fundus angiograms of 3 eyes showing areas of supply by the occluded posterior ciliary artery and the patent posterior ciliary artery. (A): Right eye with NA-AION (negative temporal artery biopsy for giant cell arteritis), showing normal filling of the area supplied by the lateral posterior ciliary artery (including the temporal half of optic disc) but no filling of the area supplied by the medial posterior ciliary artery (including the nasal half of optic disc). (Reproduced from Hayreh 1985 [25]) (B): Right eye with A-AION, showing normal filling of the area supplied by the lateral posterior ciliary artery (including the temporal ¼ of the optic disc) but no filling of the area supplied by the medial posterior ciliary artery (including the nasal ¾ of the disc). (Reproduced from Hayreh 1978 [17]) (C): Left eye with A-AION associated with cilioretinal artery occlusion, showing normal filling of the area supplied by the lateral posterior ciliary artery, but no filling of the choroid and entire optic disc supplied by the medial posterior ciliary artery or of the cilioretinal artery(arrow).
