Background Intravitreal injections of bevacizumab have been reported to have anatomical and functional success in treating choroidal neovascularization, macular edema and neovascular glaucoma. We report a case with neovascular glaucoma due to central retinal vein occlusion who demonstrates rapid resolution of anterior and posterior segment(More)
PURPOSE Hand, foot, and mouth disease is a contagious enteroviral infection occurring primarily in children and characterized by vesicular palmoplantar eruptions and erosive stomatitis. There are very few cases of unilateral acute idiopathic maculopathy associated with hand, foot, and mouth infection. We described a case with unilateral outer retinitis(More)
BACKGROUND To investigate the short-term outcomes of treatment with intravitreal aflibercept in cases with wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD) resistant to ranibizumab. METHODS The study included patients who had been undergoing follow-up for a minimum of three months at the Ankara University Faculty of Medicine Ophthalmology Department's Retina(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effects of multiple intravitreal injections of ranibizumab on retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness in patients with wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD). METHODS This observational, comparative study included patients with 10 or more total ranibizumab injections and involved the measurement of RNFL thickness at(More)
To investigate 2-year results of intravitreal triamcinolone acetonide injection for the treatment of diffuse diabetic macular edema unresponsive to previous laser photocoagulation. The study included 75 eyes of 75 diabetic patients with clinically significant diffuse macular edema that had failed to respond to previous laser photocoagulation. An(More)
Two consecutive patients with anterior non-arteritic ischaemic optic neuropathy were evaluated with spectral-domain optical coherence tomography. The optical coherence tomographic scans revealed subfoveal fluid and intraretinal fluid extending from the optic disc margin toward the fovea that made us think that the submacular fluid appeared to arise from the(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the functional and anatomical outcome after intravitreal ranibizumab injection in 2 patients with cystoid macular edema (CME) related to Irvine-Gass syndrome. METHODS Two patients with pseudophakic CME refractory to current standard topical treatment were enrolled in this study. Intravitreal (0.5 mg/0.05 mL) ranibizumab injection was(More)
Fundus autofluorescence (FAF) is a noninvasive imaging technology that provides information on the distribution of lipofuscin within the retinal pigment epithelial cells. Progressive accumulation of lipofuscin within retinal pigment epithelial cells is involved in the pathogenesis of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Fundus autofluorescence imaging(More)
Purpose. To compare the efficacy and safety of subthreshold micropulse yellow wavelength laser (SMYL) and low-fluence photodynamic therapy (PDT) in the treatment of chronic central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC). Methods. Thirty-three eyes of 30 patients with chronic CSC received either PDT (18 eyes) or SMYL (15 eyes) therapy. Best corrected visual acuity(More)
A 17-year-old boy with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) due to an unknown reason was admitted to our hospital with bone pain. He had been followed on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) for 87 months in different centers. He had received erythropoietin, iron, antihypertensive drugs, calcitriol, and a calcium-containing phosphate binder(More)
