The incidence and pathology of conjunctival ulceration in Behçet's syndrome
TLDR
Conclusions: Conjunctival ulceration should be noted as an uncommon but possible manifestation of Behçet's syndrome, and routine examination of the conjunctiva is recommended in patients with Behçett's syndrome.
CHOROIDOPATHY IN PATIENTS WITH SARCOIDOSIS OBSERVED BY SIMULTANEOUS INDOCYANINE GREEN AND FLUORESCEIN ANGIOGRAPHY
TLDR
Simultaneous ICG and FA angiography may be useful for examining choroidal lesions in sarcoidosis, but not by funduscopy or FA.
Frosted branch angiitis associated with Harada disease-like manifestations recurs 10 years later.
TLDR
Fluorescein angiography and spinal tap supported the diagnosis of Harada disease in the patient, who developed marked iridocyclitis, frosted branch angiitis and retinal white dots together with serous detachment of the sensory retina in the posterior pole of both eyes.
Seropositivity of human herpesvirus-8 in patients with uveitis
TLDR
The role of HHV-8 in the pathogenesis of intraocular inflammation appears to be limited and the seropositive rate in the patient population was higher than that in the general population, but the increased incidence was not statistically significant.
ORIGINAL ARTICLE, Recurrent versus Non-Recurrent or No Eye Involvement in Behçet's Disease
TLDR
Female patients with onset at a young age and who show the three signs of skin lesions and oral and genital ulcerations may have non-recurrent one-time only or no eye involvement at follow-up, and a better visual prognosis can be expected for these patients.
A novel gene (retinovin) expressed selectively in the early stage of chick retinal development.
TLDR
To understand molecular mechanisms of retinal development, genes expressed selectively only in the early stage ofretinal development were isolated by subtractive hybridization based on suppression polymerase chain reaction to isolate a novel gene with an open reading frame encoding a putative protein with 753 amino acids.
