Prepapillary arterial loops are rare benign congenital vascular anomalies that may be complicated by vitreous hemorrhage and branch retinal artery occlusion (BRAO). We describe the first case in the literature of simultaneous occurrence of both these complications in the same eye of a patient with a bilateral prepapillary arterial loop, successfully treated with vitrectomy.
