There is a localized dilatation of the retinal artery (there may be multiple aneurysms) with surrounding
area of hard exuedate (which may be retinal and/or subretinal). There may be associated
retinal/subretinal/preretinal/vitreous haemorrhages. The appearance is that of a macroaneurysm.
- exudate in the macula
- artery occlusion or embolus distal to the site of macroaneurysm
- hypertensive changes of the retinal vessels
