We report an atypical presentation of Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) with concomitant subhyaloid hemorrhage, engorged and tortuous retinal veins, intraretinal hemorrhages, and cotton wool spots in a 38-year-old female. Medical treatment was preferred to any invasive treatment. The subhyaloid hemorrhage resolved spontaneously and the patient recovered a visual acuity of 20/20 in her right eye 3 months after the initial episode. A prompt diagnosis of this condition is fundamental to consider a systemic treatment to avoid any further thrombosis.
