Purpose: To report a case of probable non-uniting double retinal arterial circulation. Methods: Case report. A 66-year-old man suffered central retinal artery occlusion. Results: The medical findings and angiographic workup supported the existence of double central retinal circulation not uniting before entering the globe and independently branching in the retina. Conclusions: In previously recognized unusual anatomic structures of the central retinal artery two parallel arteries were recognized, both of which united before entering the globe. We have described a rare anatomic variant in which those arteries remained separated after entering the globe, including while branching in the retina.
