Classic Iris Sign for Hardening of the Arteries

The white density along, mostly, the medial and superior edge of this iris is the classic iris sign for hardening of the arteries and is typically referred to as a sodium/cholesterol ring, although a lipid panel will not always indicate hyperlipidemia.

Also of interest is a chronic lesion (weakness) in the "peritoneum/abdominal wall" area of the iris (~5:30 o'clock, 0-.20R).

Client experienced a sharp pain while shovelling snow approximately three weeks after this picture was taken. He went to his doctor and was diagnosed with a left inguinal hernia.

Chronic sign at ~4:06-4:18 o'clock, .15-.25R in the spleen area, almost completely surrounded by an acute sign. Clinical significance unknown.
