Abstract

A 52-year-old woman with simultaneous bilateral retinal artery occlusions and normal trans-thoracic echocardiography was found to have a mitral valve lesion on trans-esophageal echocardiography. Bilateral retinal artery occlusions suggest a source of emboli at the level of the heart or aortic arch. Such cases should be evaluated not merely by trans-thoracic echocardiography, but by trans-esophageal echocardiography, which better visualizes the aortic arch and left heart cavities.
