    Swept-source Optical Coherence Tomography and Angiography Findings in Lipemia Retinalis

    Significance: Lipemia retinalis is a very rare ocular manifestation of severe hypertriglyceridemia. It is usually symptomatic and regresses after normalization of triglycerides levels. Early recognition is important to prevent ocular and life-threatening complications. Purpose: To report a case of marked lipemia retinalis secondary to type V hypertriglyceridemia assessed with swept source (SS) optical coherence tomography (OCT) and OCT angiography (OCT-A), with follow-up after dietary lipid restriction. Methods: Observational case report. Case report: Thirty-two-year-old pregnant patient with gestational diabetes and history of hypertriglyceridemia was referred for diabetic retinopathy screening. Fundus examination revealed bilateral milky-white discoloration of retinal vessels with a "salmon-coloured ...
