Frosted branch angiitis (FBA) is a rare vascular disorder, first reported by Ito et al. in 1976 in a six-year-old child. Typically FBA is characterized by acute visual loss, severe vascular inflammation, continuous sheathing of vascular structures, and retinal hemorrhages. As Ito et al. described, FBA usually affects young and healthy persons. In the upcoming years, several unusual FBA cases associated with ophthalmic and systemic diseases were reported. In the literature, other autoinflammatory diseases have a much higher incidence of ocular disease than Familial Mediterranean Fever (FMF) which was reported as a secondary cause of ophthalmic involvement in a few cases. We present an unusual and rare case of FBA secondary to FMF resembling central retinal vein occlusion.
