Boucher-Neuhäuser syndrome (BNS) is rare autosomal recessive disease, characterised by cerebellar ataxia, hypogonadotropic hypogonadism and chorio-retinal degeneration. The authors report a family (brother, 22 years and sister 24 years) with late-onset BNS (>10 years). They had subnormal intelligence; the cerebellar ataxia was progressive over(More)
PURPOSE To report our experience with the diagnosis and management of Familial Exudative Vitreoretinopathy (FEVR) in a predominantly older Indian population.. METHODS This prospective interventional non-comparative case series included 38 patients of FEVR and their 23 family members. The diagnosis was established by clinical examination, fluorescein(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether diabetic macular ischaemia is associated with ischaemic heart disease (IHD), hyperlipidaemia, hypertension (HTN) and nephropathy. METHODS Prospective case-control study from January to December 2001, involving 102 type 2 diabetic patients (aged 40-80 years), 59 with unilateral / bilateral macular ischaemia and 43 concurrent(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of panretinal photocoagulation (PRP) on macular morphology and thickness in eyes with proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) and without clinically significant macular edema. METHODS This was a prospective study of 76 eyes from 68 patients diagnosed to have PDR without clinically(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the structural changes in the acute phase of central serous chorioretinopathy and after its resolution, using spectral domain optical coherence tomography, to correlate these tomographic changes with visual acuity (VA). METHOD This was a prospective study of 100 consecutive patients with acute central serous chorioretinopathy. It was(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this research was to study the association between systemic comorbidity in diabetic serous macular detachment (DSMD) and the effect of different forms of combination therapies in its management. METHODS In this prospective analysis, 34 eyes from 34 patients with DSMD were investigated for the presence of systemic comorbidity(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the morphological types of indirect choroidal rupture (ICR) using spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). METHODS This was a prospective interventional study of 18 eyes of 18 patients who presented with a history of blunt ocular trauma resulting in choroidal rupture. All patients underwent detailed ophthalmic evaluation(More)
To describe the demographic, clinical and optical coherence tomography (OCT) characteristics of macular microholes and to determine if the size or character of the microholes has any correlation with vitreomacular interface abnormalities. Case records of 46 eyes of 39 consecutive patients with diagnosed macular microholes were reviewed as a(More)
At least 25 different drugs have been implicated in drug-induced pancreatitis. For some drugs the evidence is strong, but for many a contradictory or incomplete association exists between their administration and the occurrence of pancreatitis. To our knowledge, carbamazepine has not been associated with pancreatitis. We report a case of a 73-year-old(More)
