AIMS To analyse the histopathology of classic and occult choroidal neovascular membrane surgical specimens in age related macular degeneration. METHODS 35 membranes, from a consecutive series of surgically removed choroidal neovascular membranes in age related macular degeneration, were classified as classic or occult following the guidelines of the(More)
We describe the course of MEWDS (multiple evanescent white dot syndrome) in 2 young females. The first patient presented with a very pronounced macular edema. The second patient had merely optic disc edema. Both had an enlargement of the blind spot, which normalized later. Only the granular aspect of the fovea persisted in the involved eye.
We examined 49 patients with birdshot chorioretinopathy in whom HLA typing had been performed. Of these 49 patients, 47 (95.9%) had the HLA-A29 antigen. The HLA-B12 (B44) antigen was also significantly associated with the disease, but this antigen is known to be in linkage disequilibrium with the antigen HLA-A29. The HLA-A2 antigen was less frequent in(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM The significance of indocyanine green (ICG) angiography (ICGA) in Harada's disease still awaits clarification in many respects. This study investigates the details of choroidal lesions observed in Harada's disease by the subtraction method. METHODS Eight patients with Harada's disease were followed with ICGA. ICG angiograms were obtained(More)
The choroidal circulation was studied in 27 eyes with choroidal neovascular diseases by means of fluorescein and indocyanine green (ICG) angiography. In 10 of the cases the disciform response was seen to be associated with either watershed zones of the choroidal circulation or with areas of choroidal circulatory disturbance. This is consistent with the(More)
BACKGROUND Primary oculocerebral large cell malignant non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, formerly called ocular reticulum cell sarcoma, runs a uniformly fatal course. Once the central nervous system (CNS) is involved, survival without treatment is very limited. Although treatment does not substantially improve the long term survival, it provides short term improvement(More)
