    Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging of Paton Folds in Papilledema With Retinopathy From Systemic Hypertension

    A man in his 30s with an unremarkable medical history presented with a 2-day history of headache and blurred vision. Visual acuity was 20/20 OD and 20/25 OS. Ophthalmoscopy revealed bilateral papilledema with retinal hemorrhages and nerve fiber layer infarcts. In addition, concentric wrinkles radiating from the left optic disc were observed. The presenting blood pressure was 240/166 mm Hg and, combined with end-organ damage, systemic hypertensive emergency was diagnosed. Retinal imaging temporal to the disc demonstrated undulating folds in a “hill-valley” or sawtooth pattern involving the superficial layer of the neurosensory retina ( Figure ). Visual acuity recovered ...
