We read with interest the recently published observation by Lee and colleagues.1 The authors claim that their patient with cerebral venous thrombosis also had concomitant bilateral central retinal venous occlusion (CRVO), which was successfully treated with anticoagulation. Based on their report, the authors infer efficacy of low-molecular-weight heparin for the treatment of CRVO.
