Background: An unusual retinal arterial malformation is presented in this case report. Case presentation: A 50-years-old female with no significant past medical history, presented with an unusual retinal arterial malformation without any vision loss in the right eye. Inferior temporal retinal artery had a corkscrew like looping and extension to vitreous cavity at its emerging site from optic disc. Fundus fluorescein angiography confirmed its arterial source. Optical coherence tomography and cranial magnetic resonance imaging showed normal findings. Conclusions: Ophthalmologic findings were not consistent with well-known retinal vascular malformations like Wyburn-Mason syndrome or retinal macro vessels. The clinical presentation can be classified in a very rare group of congenital malformation termed as prepapillary vascular loops.
