INTRODUCTION Complications associated to group-A streptococcal pharyingitis include non-suppurative complications such as acute rheumatic fever and glomerulonephritis and suppurative complications such as peritonsillar or retropharyngeal abscess, sinusitis, mastoiditis, otitis media, meningitis, brain abscess, or thrombosis of the intracranial venous(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the optical quality of different intraocular lenses (IOLs). METHODS An optical test bench and suitable software were used to assist in analysis of the optical Fourier transform (OFT) of a test image and to determine the quality of the lens in terms of spatial frequency response. The OFT was automatically converted, by means of an(More)
A 78-year-old cataract patient with horizontal jerk nystagmus had phacoemulsification and intraocular lens (IOL) implantation in the capsular bag with continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis. One week postoperatively, the posterior capsule ballooned posteriorly, the anterior capsule opening was sealed to the IOL optic, and a transparent liquefied substance(More)
Purpose. To report a case of unilateral optic neuritis following Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccination. Methods. A 30-year-old female developed unilateral optic neuritis five days after a Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) booster vaccination. The patient displayed unilateral involvement, with severe visual loss. However, visual acuity improved significantly(More)
Intraocular lenses (IOLs) are widely used in cataract surgery. There is a variety of IOLs depending on lens material, optical and mechanical design. Evaluation of the visual performance obtainable with intraocular lenses is important for objective comparison between IOL models. Indeed, the visual performance of implanted lenses has a deep impact on the life(More)
We describe three cases of submacular hemorrhage that occurred two to four days after anti-VEGF intravitreal injection for occult choroidal neovascularisation in age-related macular degeneration and their management with 25 gauge pars plana vitrectomy with injection of subretinal recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rTPA) followed by fluid-air exchange(More)
