This study was performed in order to evaluate the age, sex, geographical distribution, ocular involvement, age of onset, and attacks in Behçet's disease. We examined 540 Behçet patients between 1973-1993. Of the patients, 453 were male and 87 female (m/f: 5.2/1). The average age was 30.7 +/- 0.35. The disease mostly appeared in the third decade and it was(More)
To evaluate retrospectively the clinical characteristics, complications, and prognosis in patients with ocular toxoplasmosis. We reviewed the records of 189 patients (243 eyes) with ocular toxoplasmosis who were examined between 1972 and 1999. Color fundus photography and, in some patients, fluorescein angiography and indocyanine green angiography were(More)
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)
BACKGROUND To evaluate transient pattern electroretinography (PERG) and pattern visual evoked potential (VEP) for the diagnosis, differential diagnosis and follow-up of optic nerve diseases. METHODS Twenty-nine consecutive patients (14 female, 15 male) with the diagnosis of ischaemic optic neuropathy (n=14) and optic neuritis (n=15) were included in this(More)
We used cyclosporin A (CA) to treat 14 patients (25 eyes) with Behçet's disease characterized by severe retinal vasculitis and active intraocular inflammation. All of the patients had been treated previously with corticosteroids, colchicine, and immunosuppressives, without satisfactory results. The patients were given an initial oral dose of 5 mg/kg/day.(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to examine the status of the retina and the choroid, and to evaluate blood flow velocity in the central retinal (CRA) and ophthalmic artery in Behçet's disease. METHODS Digital fluorescein and indocyanine green (ICG) videoangiography were performed in 53 eyes and color Doppler ultrasonography in 61 eyes of 31 Behçet(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)
PURPOSE To investigate genetic prothrombotic factors (factor V Leiden and prothrombin gene G20210A mutations) and their relation with retinal vascular occlusions in ocular Behçet disease. METHODS Thirty Behçet patients were prospectively recruited into the study. Their mean age was 34.2 +/- 8.3 years. All patients underwent complete ophthalmic examination(More)
BACKGROUND To report two cases with previously undescribed fundus lesions as early ocular signs of pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE). METHODS Clinical work-up including color photography and fundus fluorescein angiography (FFA). RESULTS A 10-year-old girl and an 8-year-old boy (siblings) presented with dermatological exacerbations of PXE. On(More)
PURPOSE This study was performed to determine what role indocyanine green video angiography might play in the evaluation of choroidal melanomas, and to compare this role with that of fluorescein angiography. METHODS Six patients with posterior segment uveal melanoma underwent digital fluorescein and indocyanine green videoangiography. All patients were(More)
