A 16-year-old boy had a central retinal artery occlusion and was subsequently diagnosed as a hemizygote with Fabry's disease. The typical ocular manifestations in males with this inborn error of glycosphingolipid metabolism include whorl-like corneal epithelial infiltrates, retinal and conjunctival vessel tortuosity, and lenticular changes. The present case represents the first report of a retinal artery occlusion as an ocular complication of Fabry's disease.
