PMID:  18025659     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We present a case of protein S deficiency causing central retinal vein occlusion treated with anticoagulation, which includes heparin followed by oral warfarin therapy. This article highlights the importance of looking for other possible causes of central retinal vein occlusion, especially in younger patients with negative initial investigations.
