Combined vascular occlusions involving the parts of the retinal arterial and venous systems have been reported in the past. Among these, simultaneous occlusion of the central retinal artery (CRAO) and vein (CRVO) is well characterized.Coexistent cilioretinal artery occlusion along with CRVO is most frequently reported and is equally well described.Rarely, branch retinal arterial occlusion has been reported to coexist with CRVO.Many of these combined vascular occlusions have been described in association with comorbidities such as diabetes, dyslipidemia, systemic lupus, and hyperhomocysteinemia. Most other reports have been anecdotal and describe single cases.We present a series of six cases of combined BRAO and BRVO and describe the clinical, angiographic, and optical coherence tomographic features along with comorbid systemic associations and visual outcomes in these eyes.
