A 66-year-old woman was referred for evaluation of retinal vessel abnormality. She had no visual symptoms. The anterior segment showed a retrolental opacity in her right eye. Fundus examination showed a bilateral prepapillary vascular loop associated with PHPV in her right eye. Prepapillary vascular loops were present in both eyes, although they were much more prominent in the right eye. To our knowledge, there are no reports of prepapillary vascular loops associated with PHPV.
