    Correct answer:

    Roth spots, most commonly seen in endocarditis but also in other conditions like e.g. Behçet's, hypercoagulability and connective tissue diseases.

    There clearly are retinal hemorrhages, caused by micro infarctions of the retina that typically have a pale centre (coagulated fibrin; Roth spots).
