Eales' disease is a noninflammatory occlusive disorder of the retinal vasculature that causes recurrent hemorrhages into the retina and vitreous and ischemic changes in the eye. Extraocular manifestations of Eales' disease are rare and limited to the central nervous system. We report the case of a patient with Eales' disease and ischemic stroke, and we review the neurologic manifestations of this primarily ophthalmologic vasculopathy.
